Default Octal Temperature

It seems like when the Celsius scale reassembles to the Octal base, the precision decreases down, thus make it less like the Fahrenheit scale.

------------------------------------- | 00° -> Freezing
01° 02° 03° 04° 05° 06° 07° | 10°
11° 12° 13° 14° 15° 16° 17° | 20°
21° 22° 23° 24° 25° 26° 27° | 30°
31° 32° 33° 34° 35° 36° 37° | 40°
41° 42° 43° 44° 45° 46° 47° | 50°
51° 52° 53° 54° 55° 56° 57° | 60°
61° 62° 63° 64° 65° 66° 67° | 70°
71° 72° 73° 74° 75° 76° 77° | 100° -> Boiling

The human body temperature will be around 27.5°

I can't wrap my head around this... In the Celsius scale, the body temperature is about 37 °C. That's, by definition, 100 °F.

But how does the Fahrenheit scale fit into this octal Celsius scale?

Freezing what? Boiling what? Mercury? At what pressure? Is it a linear scale?

You have not properly specified whatever it is you are trying to say.

16°OF(Octal Fahrenheit) for every 10°OC(Octal Celsius)

32°OF = 0°OC
50°OF = 10°OC
66°OF = 20°OC
104°OF = 30°OC
122°OF = 40°OC
140°OF = 50°OC
156°OF = 60°OC
174°OF = 70°OC
212°OF = 100°OC

The Boiling and Freezing are for water under the standard pressure.

Another bullshit, trolling thread.

The °F to °C formula involves a 9/5, or, amplified by 2, that would mean 18/10, so, if you go to base 8, tha't 022/012. Where does 14/8 comes from? If you discard the float part as you like, of course you lose precision.

You are wasting everybody's time.

Next attempt will result in a week ban.
