To do: Converting the Fahrenheit to Celcius degree C++ code sample demonstrating user defined function

To show: How to convert Fahrenheit to Celcius in C++ programming to demonstrate the user defined function

 

// the Fahrenheit to Celcius conversion C++ example

#include <iostream>

using namespace std;

 

// function prototype

float Convert(float);

 

int main(void)

{

float TempFer;

float TempCel;

cout<<"Please enter the temperature in Fahrenheit: ";

cin>>TempFer;

// function call

TempCel = Convert(TempFer);

cout<<"\n";

cout<<TempFer<<" Fahrenheit = "<<TempCel<<" Celcius"<<endl;

 

return 0;

}

 

// function definition

float Convert(float TempFer)

{

// local variable

float TempCel;

 

TempCel = ((TempFer - 32) * 5) / 9;

// return the result to the calling program

return TempCel;

}

 

Output example:

 

Please enter the temperature in Fahrenheit: 222

222 Fahrenheit = 105.556 Celcius
