A gas condensed into a liquid phase at approximately 14.6 K. What temperature, in degrees Fahrenheit does this correspond to?

This is a physics question and I am not sure how to do it.

Update:

I also had a question on this hw too.

a temperature difference of 516.5 K is equal to what difference on the celsius scale?

    For an exact conversion from Kelvin to Celsius, subtract 273.15.

    For an exact conversion from Celsius to Fahrenheit, multiply by 1.8 and add 32.

    Then 14.6K = -258.55 ºC

    which in turn is -258.55*1.8 + 32 = -433.39 ºF

    For CHANGES in temperature, 1 K = 1 ºC = 1.8ºF

    T = -273.15+14.6 = -258.6°C 

    °F = °C*9/5+32

    T = -258.6*9/5+32 = -433.5 °F 

    a temperature difference of 516.5 K is equal to the same difference on the Celsius scale

    not sure, that does look complicated
