**ANSWER:**

Step 1 of 7

The temperature can be represented in three units Kelvin, degrees Celsius, and degrees Fahrenheit. These units are interconvertible, and the relationship between them is governed as follows:

\(1^{\circ}C + 273 = 274\;K\)

\(1^{\circ}F = 255.98\; K\)

\((\left(1 \;^{\circ}F-32\right) \times 5/9+273 =255.98\; K)\)

\(1 \;^{\circ}F =-17.22\; ^{\circ} C\)

\((\left(1 \;^{\circ}F-32\right) \times 5/9=- 17.22\;{^\circ}C )\)
