Better yet, don't convert at all. Just learn to use Celsius: 0 is freezing,
100 is boiling, under 10 is chilly, 20 is comfortable, 30 or above is
uncomfortably hot.

5 is definite jacket weather, 13 is maybe shirtsleeves, depending on what
you are used to, how tough you are, and the wind.

Grammar and spelling are tools to be used in moderation.
So is math.

In the interests of nitpicking, the even-more accurate formula is
multiply the Celsius temperature by 1.8 (or 9/5, whatever is easier) and
add 32 to get Fahrenheit.
