Fahrenheit to celsius

I am trying to make a list with only the Celsius values that are within a range. I'm trying to do it with a list comprehension but the code down does not seem to work.

Here's one solution:

# ipython3 fahrenheit to celsius

In [26]: lower_limit = 1

In [27]: upper_limit = 200

In [28]: fahrenheit = [-40, 0, 32, 122, 212]

In [29]: celsius = [(x-32)*5/9 for x in fahrenheit if x > lower_limit and x < upper_limit]

In [30]: celsius
Out[30]: [0.0, 50.0]
