A. 18C
B. 23C
C. 29C
D. 47C
E. 51C

\(F=\frac{9}{5}C + 32\)
If F = 85, then \(85=\frac{9}{5}C + 32\);
\(53=\frac{9}{5}C\);
\(C=53*\frac{5}{9} \approx 54*\frac{5}{9}=30\).
Answer: C.

Alternative approach, work around by plugging in the options as this question talks about approximate values
Use options (C) the middle value ( As the options are in ascending order )
\(F=\frac{9}{5}*C + 32\)
Or, \(30*\frac{9}{5} + 32 = 86\)
Thus, answer must be (C)

Here, since the values are far apart, approximation can be helpfu
\(F = \frac{9}{5} * C + 32 = 1.8C + 32\)
Now, if we take 1.8C as 2C, this becomes easy. Substituting for the values, we see which is closest to 85 (we must remember that the actual value will be a little lesser than what we have actually comberan).
Option A:
C = 18. Then F = ( 2 * 18) + 32 = 36 + 32 = 68
Option B:
C = 23. Then F = ( 2 * 23) + 32 = 46 + 32 = 78
Option C:
C = 29. Then F = ( 2 * 29) + 32 = 58 + 32 = 90 => This is closest to 85
We can check the other options, but it becomes unnecessary after this point.
Option C

F = \(\frac{9}{5}\) * C + 32
=> \(\frac{(5)(F – 32) }{ 9}\) = C
=> \(\frac{(5)(8532) }{ 9}\) = C
=> C = 29
Answer C
