My gas oven does not show degrees instead it has numbers 1 - 8. How does this convert to Fahrenheit?

Fahrenheit -32 divided by 1.8 = Celsius

Celsius x 1.8 +32 = Fahrenheit

It's not related to temperature. In Germany, it's called the "jew scale"

My gas oven has a listing that says

1 - 140C to 160C
2 - 160C to 180C

Each level is 20C.

I have a number of German and Austrian cookbooks...in most of the recipes it calls for the oven to be set at Mark 5,etc...does anyone know where I can find the equivalent in degrees???
