I am a fifth grade student and need an answer to a question from school. We are doing a crossword puzzle and one answer is a temperature scale where 32 is freezing and 212 is boiling. It looks like it starts with an "a", but I can't find the answer anywhere. Can you help?

MIKE MOSS SAYS:      Kaelin,      The only temperature scale that matches the criteria you listed is the common one that we use everyday here in the U.S., that is the fahrenheit scale, in which the temperature difference between the freezing and boiling points of water is divided into 180 degrees.
