Converting °Fahrenheit to °Celsius and visa versa

• The freezing point of water in Fahrenheit is 32 degrees, in Celsius it is 0 degrees.
• The boiling point of water in Fahrenheit is 212 degrees, in Celsius it is 100 degrees.
• Consequently the difference between freezing and boiling is 180 degrees Fahrenheit (212-32) or 100 degrees Celsius (100-0). This means that 180 degrees change in Fahrenheit is equal to 100 degree change in Celsius, or more simply 1.8 degrees Fahrenheit equals 1.0 degrees Celsius.

This gives rise to the following equations to convert between Celsius and Fahrenheit:

°C = (°F - 32) ÷ 1.8 For example: (68°F-32) ÷ 1.8 = (36) ÷ 1.8 = 20°C

°F = (°C x 1.8) + 32 For example: (20°C x 1.8) + 32 = (36) + 32 = 68°F
Setting a Table

Setting a table is almost as important as the food you prepared for the meal. A neat, interesting, clean and attractive table setting makes any meal more enjoyable.

What goes where on the table and which glasses go with what drinks?

Let 's look at the following guide on how to set the table:

STEP 1
Select the tablecloth.

• You can choose any tablecloth, but make sure that the linen patterns do not clash with the china (crockery) patterns. If the crockery is patterned, choose a plain tablecloth. For using plain, single-coloured crockery, a patterned tablecloth is fine.

• When setting the table for a formal dinner white or ivory tablecloths are more appropriate.

• Select the right size of tablecloth.

How to select the correct size and shape of tablecloth:

Tablecloths come in square, round, oblong (rectangle), and oval.

An oblong tablecloth is designed to fit a rectangle table with square corners. An oval tablecloth fits an egg-shaped table.

The icons below show the various shapes as labelled on most packages.

SQUARE ROUND OBLONG OVAL

To determine the proper Tablecloth size:

Determine the width and length dimensions of your table. The desired drop is:
10-12 inches to lap level
15 inches for standard banquet tables 29-30 inches to the floor

Once you have these dimensions, to determine the cloth size, add the drop times 2 to each dimension of your table.

Example:
If the table size is 30x72
