converting ºC to ºF or ºF to ºC

I have to retract my stupid statement about fixed-point maps -- it's been decades since I did any mathematics.  But in this case, -40 is still a fixed point.

No relation to Erlich -- we spell our names differently, too.

Hello David. Maybe I see.  Yes, -40 is the same temperature in both scales. 
But I think that I don't see it.  Some aspects of simple math have always 
eluded me.

Any relation to an Erlich who would be about 86-87 right now who went to the 
U of C Berkeley and was friends with Townsend Conover and Drs. Lanny (Ann) & 
and Pete Wilkins?
