Cricket Formula

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


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


  1. This helps a lot!
