    Hello,
    Please check if my conversion was correct.

    \frac{9(1324)}{5}+32
    \frac{9(264.8)}+32
    \frac{2383.2}+32

    To convert Celsius to Fahrenheit.
    If "x" is the value in Celsius then, first we multiply "x" with 9 ,then we divide the result with 5 and then add 32 to it.

    Now if 1324 C is the value then the answer will be {(1324 * 9)/5}+32 = 2415.2

    You just didn't add 32 to it.

    Good Luck

    If "x" is the value in Fahrenheit then,first subtract 32 from "x",then multiply the result by 5 and then divide it by 9.

    Now lets convert 2415.2 F to Celsius (we know the answer) i.e..
    {(2415.2 - 32) * 5}/9 = 1324 C

    Catapult, also please take the time to review your post before submitting it. It is counter productive if it has formatting errors or typos in it.

    That seems fair, a close number to use as a check while not giving all the digits.
