#### Question

(a) The Celsius scale is devised so that $0^{\circ} \mathrm{C}$ is the freezing point of water (at 1 atmosphere of pressure) and $100^{\circ} \mathrm{C}$ is the boiling point of water (at 1 atmosphere of pressure). If you are more familiar with the Fahrenheit scale, then you know that water freezes at $32^{\circ} \mathrm{F}$ and boils at $212^{\circ} \mathrm{F}.$ Find a linear equation that relates temperature measured in degrees Celsius and temperature measured in degrees Fahrenheit. (b) The normal body temperature in humans ranges from $97.6^{\circ} \mathrm{F}$ to $99.6^{\circ} \mathrm{F}.$ Convert this temperature range into degrees Celsius.
