xoF = (nx)oC (Posted on 2012-12-31) Difficulty: 3 of 5
If x degrees Fahrenheit = nx degrees Celsius, where each of n and x is a nonzero integer, determine all values of n and x for which this is possible.

Keeping all the other conditions unaltered, how about:
x degrees Celsius = nx degrees Fahrenheit?

Note:
Fahrenheit to Celsius:
oC= 5*(oF - 32)/9

Celsius to Fahrenheit :
oF= (C*9/5) + 32

...(5 - 9n) is always negative, so there is no solution

What is wrong with negative temperatures??(except that is cold outside..)

e.g. n=1 f=c= -40

Look for more or show that there are none.
