To determine

Whether Fahrenheit and Kelvin temperature scales agree and also the same for Celsius and Kelvin scales.

Explanation

We know that the Fahrenheit and Celsius temperature scales agree at -40°C

Now we have to find Fahrenheit and Kelvin scales agree at what temperature.

Let at temperature X the numerical value of Fahrenheit and Kelvin scale will agree.

So, we can write tF=1.8T459.67 as

X=1.8X459.67

X1.8X=459.67

0.8X=459
