The following code leads to an error -

temp.rb:5:in `*': String can't be coerced into Fixnum (TypeError)

can someone explain the error to me so I can determine how to resolve it, Thanks a million!

def c_f(temp)
	convert=((9/5)*temp)+32
	print "the coverted fig is ", convert
end
temp=gets.chomp
Integer(temp)
c_f(temp)
