centigrade   10

Celsius, Centigrade and Fahrenheit
The name Centigrade was derived from the latin - meaning hundred degrees.
When Anders Celsius created his original scale in 1742 he inexplicably chose 0° for the boiling point and 100° for the freezing point.
One year later Frenchman Jean Pierre Cristin proposed an inverted version of the scale (freezing point 0°, boiling point 100°). He named it Centigrade.
In 1948, by international agreement, Cristin's adapted scale became known as Celsius to honour the Swedish Scientist.
