Not a record, here. I’ve walked my dog at -47, thankfully, there was no wind.

-60 is the record cold temp in Minnesota.

There is something in engineering and science called “significant figures.” This means the accuracy of the reported number. Excessive significant figures is a big No-No. I used to deduct for it on exams.

So, that said,

-47 F = -44 C

-104 F = – 76 C

And you get – 2 pts for excessive sig fig.
