Did you mean at what temperature is Fahrenheit and Celsius the same?

At -40 degrees

I calculated it by using algebra on one of the two formulas. °F = (°C * 9/5) + 32 °C = (°F - 32) * 5/9

Since you want to know when both are the same, we use the same value for both °C and °F, call it x. x = (x * 9/5) + 32 x = 9/5x + 32 x - 9/5x = 32 -4/5x = 32 x = 32 * 5/4 -x = 40 x = -40

You could do the same for the other formula to double check if you wanted.
