(1) A Brazilian tourist feels bad during a trip to New York. On examination at a local hospital, the nurse tells him that his current temperature was 105 ° C, but that he should rest assured that he had already dropped 4 ° C. After the fright, the tourist realized that his temperature had been measured on a Fahrenheit scale. What was your previous temperature and what is your current temperature?

Previous: 105 ° + 4 ° = 109 ° F

Current: 105 ° F
