Worksheet Overview

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


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

So 60' = 1º



Convert 42.45º  into an angle in degrees and minutes.



Just look at the part after the decimal point i.e. 0.45º


Use a calculator to work out 0.45 × 60 = 27

So 42.45º = 42º 27'


That's pretty simple, isn't it?
