It's true. You can take that to the bank.

• Yes, It's true. -40F=-40C

and it's the freezing point of mercury.

• that is where the two linear scales intersect, yes.  Two lines with different slopes (non-parallel lines) will inevitably intersect at some point.  With the F and C scales, that point just happens to be where each is at -40.

• True. 0C=32. -40=-40-32=-72F

-72= -72/180*100=-40 C

• -40 C = (-40 C*9/5 1/C +32) F = -40 F

• Yes, it IS true, assuming approximately 1 atmosphere pressure.

• yes it is a fluke

because 0 degs c = 32 degs F

and each deg C = 1.8 deg F

0 to 40 = -40 degs C

= -40  C * 1.8F/C = -72 degs

32 degs - 72 degs = -40 degs
