A change (up or down) of 6 degrees on the Celsius scale is equal to a change of 10.8 degrees on the Fahrenheit scale.

6C = 42.8F; 12C = 53.6F; 0C = 32F and so on.

That is true, but the convertion that makes it easy is Fahrenheit and Celsius are at a 9/5 ratio.
9/5 = 1.8
10.8/6= 1.8
just a more simple ratio, so if you times you Fahrenheit by 5/9 you get the Celsius temp. :)
