### QUESTION 1 of 10

An angle of 1º can be divided into 60 equal parts.

Each of these parts is known as 1 minute (1').

So 60' = 1º

Example

Convert 42º 14' into an angle in decimal format to 2 decimal places.

14' = 14/60 degrees.

Use a calculator to work out 14 ÷ 60 = 0.2333333...

So 42º 14' = 42.23333333º... = 42.23º (to 2 dp)

Convert the following angle into decimal format to 2 decimal places.
