    Hi,

    I am learning c, new to programing, any help with following would be much appreciated. Keeps giving me the answer 0.000000000:mad::mad::mad:

    *****************************************************
    #include <stdio.h>

    int main()

    {

    //declarations
    float celsius=0;
    float fahrenheit=0;


    printf("please enter a tempture in fahrenhiet \n");
    printf("-->number must be from -500 to 1000 \n\n");
    printf("****range is from -500 to 1000****\n");
    scanf("%f", &fahrenheit);


    if((fahrenheit<-500)||(fahrenheit>1000))
    printf("invlid number range\n\a");

    else {
    celsius = faherheit -32 (5.0/9.0) *5 ;
    printf("\nThe answer in celcius is ---->> %f", &celsius);
    }
    return 0;
    }

    4 errors in this line
    celsius = faherheit -32 (5.0/9.0) *5 ;

    1 spelling error, and 3 errors in the conversion formula.

    If fahrenheit is 212 then celsius should be 100.

    Really important for a starter programmer to learn how to use the debug, breakpoint, step and inspect variable.

    Loads of videos on youtube using dev c++. This one is less than 3 minutes.
