Answer for screen readers
72 degrees Fahrenheit is equal to 22.22 degrees Celsius.
Steps to Solve

Apply conversion formula
Use the formula: $C = (F  32) × \frac{5}{9}$
Where: $C$ = Temperature in Celsius $F$ = Temperature in Fahrenheit (72°F)
$C = (72  32) × \frac{5}{9}$

Calculate
 Subtract 32 from 72: $72  32 = 40$

Multiply by $\frac{5}{9}$: $40 × \frac{5}{9} = \frac{200}{9} = 22.22$ (rounded to 2 decimal places)
72 degrees Fahrenheit is equal to 22.22 degrees Celsius.
More Information
The Celsius scale is used in most countries worldwide, while Fahrenheit is primarily used in the United States. At this temperature (22.22°C or 72°F), most people would find it comfortably warm.
Tips
Common mistakes include forgetting to subtract 32 before multiplying by 5/9, or incorrectly applying the inverse formula (used for Celsius to Fahrenheit conversion). Always remember to subtract 32 first, then multiply by 5/9 for Fahrenheit to Celsius conversions.
