# 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?
