55 degrees Celsius as degrees Fahrenheit is 131. There are two ways to work out this answer, they are:

Using the mathematical equation

If you are good at math and numbers then this is probably the best and most accurate way to work out temperature from degrees Celsius to degrees Fahrenheit, you will need to use the following method to work out this conversion:

· Firstly ensure you have the correct reading in Celsius

· Then you will need to multiply the temperature in Celsius by 1.8. It is easiest and most accurate to do this on a calculator, but it can also be done on paper, if you are able to do multiplication sums with decimal points

· Once you have found the answer to the above sum, you will need to add 32 onto the answer

· The answer to this is how many degrees Fahrenheit the original temperature is. For the given question it would look like this:

O 55 X 1.8 = 99

o 99 + 32 = 131

o Answer = 131

Conversion chart

Alternatively, you can use a straight forward conversion chart. Basically you follow the line from which ever temperature you know (in this case degrees Celsius) along until you reach the diagonal line, when you meet the line follow it down to see what the temperature would be in Fahrenheit.

This takes less time and effort but may not necessarily always be available to you. The following link will take you to an example of such a chart; many similar sites can also be found online @ www.fahrenheit.org/
