Given that 290=\frac{5}{9} * (K - 32) --> 290*\frac{9}{5}=K - 32 --> 522=K-32 --> K=554.

Answer: D.

290=\frac{5}{9}(K-32)
58*9=k-31
i rounded 9 to 10 so
580-58+31=k
then i choose d, no point in doing calculations to waste time

290 = \frac{5}{9} * (k-32)

k = 290*\frac{9}{5} + 32

k = 58*9 + 32

Answer would be ending with 4; only option D = 554 fits in

Answer = D
