## conditions.cs

```// This program asks the user for a Fahrenheit temperature,
// converts the given temperature to Celsius,
// and displays the results.
//Input:
//     Fahrenheit temperature
// Output:
//     Fahrenheit temperature
//    Celsius temperature
// Example:
//    Enter Fahrenheit temperature:
//    100
//    100.0° Fahrenheit is 37.8° Celsius
