Probably should've commented with this when I posted the snippet, here's the guidelines for the programming exercise:

Write a program that requests the user to enter a Fahrenheit temperature. The program should read the temperature as a type double number and pass it as an argument to a user-supplied function called Temperatures(). This function should calculate the Celsius equivalent and the Kelvin equivalent and display all three temperatures with a precision of two places to the right of the decimal. It should identify each value with the temperature scale it represents. Here is the formula for converting Fahrenheit to Celsius:

Celsius = 1.8 * Fahrenheit + 32.0

The Kelvin scale, commonly used in science, is a scale in which 0 represents absolute zero, the lower limit to possible temperatures. Here is the formula for converting Celsius to Kelvin:

Kelvin = Celsius + 273.16

The Temperatures() function should use const to create symbolic representations of the three constants that appear in the conversions. The main() function should use a loop to allow the user to enter temperatures repeatedly, stopping when a q or other nonnumeric value is entered.
