We know that:

 Celsius  (C) = (5/9) ( F - 32 )

Given C = 55

==> (5/9) (F- 32) = 55

==> (F- 32) = 55*9/5

== F-32 = 99

==> F = 99 + 32

==> F = 131 degrees fahrenhiit

This comes out to about 131 degrees Fahrenheit.  Here is how you find this result.

The formula for doing this conversion is

F = C (9/5) + 32.

In this equation, F is the temperature in degrees Fahrenheit while C is the temperature in degrees Celsius.  9/5 comes out to 1.8.

So to find for F we simply plug in 55 to the equation.

F = 55 (1.8) + 32

F = 99 + 32

F = 131

So we can see that a temperature of 55 degrees Celsius is the equivalent of a temperature of 131 degrees Fahrenheit.

The relation between F (Fahrenheit) and C (Celsius ) is given by:

C = (F-32)*5/9 . Or

F = 9C/5 +32

Here C= 55 degree given.

F = 9*55/5 +32

F = 9*11 +32

F = 131 deree.

We'll note:

F = Fahrenheit temperature

C = Celsius temperature

We'll uset the conversion formula and we'll substitute 55 for Celsius.

C = (5/9)(F-32)

55 = (5/9)(F-32)

We'll multiply by (9/5):

55*9/5 = F - 32

We'll simplify and we'll get:

11*9 = F - 32

99 = F - 32

We'll add 32 both sides:

F = 99 + 32

F = 131 Fahrenheit are the equivalent of 55 degrees Celsius.
