You need to remember what is the formula that converts Fahrenheit degrees to Celsius degrees:

`C^o = (F^o - 32)*(5/9)`

Since the problem tells the Fahrenheit degrees, you need to plug this number in the formula above such that:

`C^o = (-4 - 32)*(5/9) =gt C^o = (-36)*(5/9)=gt C^o = -4*5 = -20^o`

The answer to this problem is `-20^oC`  (see answer D).

The next problem asks to convert Celsius degrees into Fahrenheit. You need to remember the conversion formula:

`C^o*(9/5) + 32 = F^o` 

Plugging the given Celsius degrees in, yields:

`37*9/5 + 32 = F^o =gt 333/5 + 32 = F^o =gt (333 + 160)/5 = F^o =gt F^o~~98 ^o F`  (see answer A).

The answers to both problems are: for the problem 16: -`20^oC` ; for the problem 17: `98 ^o ` F.
