232.78C is 451F. I couldn't find what the exact temperature paper burns on the internet. Good question.

HERE IS HOW TO CONVERT FAHRENHEIT INTO CELCIUS.

Determine the temperature in Fahrenheit. Using your calculator, subtract 32. Multiply the result times 5. Divide that answer by 9. Your final answer is the temperature in Celsius.
