The Craziness of Math

Math is not my favorite subject, but I do find fun things about it that just boggle my mind. For example, 0°C = 32°F, so 32°F + 32°F = 64°F, right? But, if 0°C = 23°F does that mean, 0°C + 0°C = 64°F? But what boggles my mind is the fact that 64°F = 17.7778°C, and my question is, does 17.7778°C = 0°C? 


Mathematically… this theory is incorrect.

BUT LOGICLY… it is 100% correct and mind boggling.
