This is a fun algebra novelty that will allow you to figure out the temperature on a hot summer day based on the number of times a cricket chirps. This "cricket formula" will provide you with the temperature in degrees Fahrenheit.

Cricket Formula

T = C4 + 37

where,

T = outdoor temperature

C4 = number of times a cricket chirps in 15 seconds(1/4 of a minute)

C = Chirps

4 = 1/4 minute

So, if a cricket chirped is 60 times in 15 seconds then:

T = 60 + 37 or 97 degrees Fahrenheit
