North Pole Research

North Pole Research

A research team is in the North Pole conducting a study on climate change. During the transmission of the daily information to the central station there is a problem in the communication so that the measurement scale corresponding to the ambient temperature of the base is not received correctly.

From the central station, they ask the base: Can you repeat on what scale the temperature was measured, Celsius or Fahrenheit?

To which from the base they answered: It does not have the slightest importance.

What was the ambient temperature of the base?


The celsius and farenheit scale coincide in -40 (-40ºC = -40ºF) so that if the scale was not relevant when communicating the temperature, this should be the measurement.
