Solution

That is to say, each degree Celsius is 1.8 times larger than each degree Fahrenheit. However, to convert a Celsius temperature to a Fahrenheit scale, you have to add 32 to the whole shenanigan, because the F scale starts 32 marks below the C scale. 1 degree celsius is greater than 1 degree farenheit.
In the Celsius scale there are 100 degrees between the freezing point and the boiling point of water compared to 180 degrees in the Fahrenheit scale. This means that 1 °C = 1.8 °F (check the section about temperature differences below).
Let initial temp in Celsius be T1.

Initial (I) Final (F) Change (F-I)
Celsius (ºC) T1 T1+1 1
Kelvin (K) T1 + 273 T1 + 1 +273 1

Thus we can see that the change in kelvin would be 1K.
