Thanks, Norbert! In English and more complete!

Pepish, Haydée: I know what you are talking about

In my case, 300 words/hour vs. 1 conversion/day

Cheers,
Andrea

Rule of thumb for temperatures
Calculation:
Celsius = (Fahrenheit – 32) * 5/9
Fahrenheit = (9/5 * Celsius) + 32

Estimation (for non-professional use only, just ot get a rough idea):
C = (F-30) * 0.5
F = 2C + 30


Examples of an estmation versus calculation
F = 20…..estimation: C = -5….calculation: C = -6.7
F = 50…..estimation: C = 10….calculation: C = 10
F = 100..estimation: C = 35….calculation: C = 37.8

C = -10…..estimation: F = 10…….calculation: F = 14
C = 10…...estimation: F = 50…...calculation: F = 50
C = 40…...estimation: F = 110….calculation: F = 104
