    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

    plug and chug with the formulas (because I might lie to you).
