Perform Temperature Conversions: 0 Degrees

When I Convert From "degrees Celsius" (or "Celsius" or "dC") to "degrees Fahrenheit", why is the answer 33.799... degrees and not 32 degrees?

The program assumed that you wanted to Convert From one (1) degree Celsius since you did not enter a number before degrees Celsius.  If you meant to Convert From zero (0) degrees Celsius, then you must enter the zero as in 0 degrees Celsius.  Whenever you Convert From some measurement and you do not enter an amount, the program assumes that you want to convert one of them to something else.
