    I really need help in this assignment since Function is so complicated. I only understand around 70% of it.
    here is the assingment: Please write it in basic code so I can learn more and modify it later on

    "Write a function called Celsius that accepts one argument for the Fahrenheit temperature and returns the value of the Fahrenheit temperature converted to Celsius.
    Here is the formula to convert a Fahrenheit temperature to Celsius
    C = 5 / 9 * (F – 32)
    To use this function create a for loop that goes from 0 to 100.
    In each iteration of the loop
    • call the Celsius function passing the function the loop counter
    • print the loop counter and the value returned from the Celsius function on the same line
    This will create a list where the first number represents the Fahrenheit temperature and the second number represents the corresponding Celsius temperature."

    thank you much

    No offense, Hale88, but you really need to give it a little effort. You can write this whole thing in 4 lines of code.

    I'm feeling generous this morning so here is a C# version ...
    for (i = 0; i <= 100; i++)
        Console.Writeln("Fahrenheit : " + i + "    Celsius : " + Celsius(i).ToString());
    float Celsius (int Fahrenheit)
        return 5 / 9 * (Fahrenheit - 32);
