How to use while true loop for this qustion?

9 views (last 30 days)
The Fahrenheit temperature is converted to Celsius temperature by the following formula , write a script file to accept temperature in Fahrenheit and calculate its Celsius equivalent for 5 times using DO WHILE loop.
While writing the Program please consider the Following:
  1. The program must ask the user to input the temperature in Fahrenheit.
  2. The program must display the temperature in Celsius.

I do not at the moment recall any limits on the input temperatures. I would tend to expect that if temperatures as low as 0K are permitted then you would want to allow temperatures higher than 100C.

Sorry to ask again. is thes anser true?
x=1;
while true
F = input('inter the degree in Fahrenheit: ');
C = ( F - 32 )*5/9;
fprintf("the degree in Celsius is: %f°F \n",C)
if x == 5
break
end
x = x + 1;
end

assign initial conditions
while true
do a calculation
if condition is satisfied
break;
end
end
here, "condition is satisfied" needs to be expressed the opposite way than you would use for a "do while". For example in C
do {
x = rand();
} while x > 0.1;
would become
while true
x = rand() ;
if x <= 0.1; break; end
end
Notice the C condition of x > 0.1 becomes the condition x <= 0.1

Hello
Here is an example of calculation
% Define the value of F used in the calculation as a "vector".
F = [70 80 75 84 92];
% Calculate the average value of F using the mean function.
AveC = mean(5/9*(F - 32))
AveC =
26.7778
documentation for mean function
