Please 3

Please help; I'm lost! I'm calculating the difference between two Fahrenheit degrees 55°F - 37°F = 18 °F
Now, if I converted the degrees Fahrenheit to Celsius before subtracting, then we get 12.78°C - 2.78 =10°C. How is that possible when 18°F does not equal 10°C? Could you please explain?

Correct answer:

d =  18 °F
c =  10 °C
c2 =  18 °F

Step-by-step explanation:

Did you find an error or inaccuracy? Feel free to write us. Thank you!
