Amoung the higest and lowest temperatures recorded are 136degrees F in the Libyan desert and -129Degrees F in the Antarctica. What are these in Celsius?

To make a secrue fit, rivets that are larger than the rivit hole are often used and the rivit is cooled, before it is placed in the hole. A steel rivit 1.871cm in diameter is to be placed in a hole 1.869cm in diameter at 20Degrees C. To what temperature must the rivit be colled if it is to fit the hole?
