9/5 and 5/9 would be a repeating deicmal. I find fractions would be easier to multiply
then a repeating deicmal. That's why I asked how to use fractions...

Well, seeing as you're in the 7th or 8th grade (at least according to your Website)
- my sincere apologies ...
Just use 5.0/9.0 in your formula.

I'm wanting to make a simple PHP script that converts Celsius to Farenheit,
Farenheit to Celsius, Farenheit to Kelvin, and Celsius to Kelvin. I have the formula
but it requires fractions. How can I use frations in PHP to multiply or divide? If you
can't, how could I substitute doing so? 5/9 (F - 32) is the forumla to get Celsius to
Farenheit if you need it.
