I'm taking my first introductory course on computer science and we went over converting Fahrenheit to Celsius.

The above is my code, but I'm getting bunch of errors...I have no idea what I'm doing. Any help would be greatly appreciated.--

Hi Justine,

Welcome to CodeRanch!

Please, TellTheDetails(<-click). Can you please provide more details about what errors are you facing? I found a couple of compilation errors when I copy-pasted your code:
1) degreesInFahrenheit is int and 32.0 is double. You need to make sure that datatypes are same during subtraction.
2) Strangely, the minus sign gave me another error - it looks like some other character than minus sign.

Apart from this, let us know if you face any other issues.

Also, please UseCodeTags(<-click). Code tags can be added by using 'Code' button during writing the post. I've added those for you this time.
