An Angle and its complement add to 90o, so the complement of 25o19'12'' is: 90o - 25o19'12" = 64o40'48" as there are 60 seconds to every minute and 60 minutes to every degree.

Yes

Angles are measured by degrees. Fractions of degrees are measured in minutes and seconds.

There are 360 degrees in a full circle. 60 minutes in 1 degree 60 seconds in 1 minute Therefore: 360 x 60 x 60 = 1,296,000 seconds

It is 360/67 = 5 degrees 22 minutes and 23.28 seconds

An Angle and its complement add to 90o, so the complement of 25o19'12'' is: 90o - 25o19'12" = 64o40'48" as there are 60 seconds to every minute and 60 minutes to every degree.

The symbol for degrees is °, for minutes is ', and for seconds is ''. So, a measurement of 45 degrees 30 minutes 20 seconds would be written as 45° 30' 20".

The supplement of an angle is the difference between it and 180Â°, so the supplement of 45Â° 36â€² 25â€³ is 180Â° 00â€² 00â€³ - 45Â° 36â€² 25â€³ = 134Â° 23â€² 35â€³

Divide that by 60 to get degrees. If you want degrees and minutes, do an integer division by 60; the remainder will be the minutes. Seconds will of course be zero in this case.

d degrees + m minutes + s seconds = d + m/60 + s/3600 degrees in decimal form.

Latitude, which is measured in degrees, minutes and seconds.

Each degree is equal to 60 minutes, each minute is equal to 60 seconds; to convert seconds to minutes, divide the seconds by 60 and add to the minutes. Ex. (Assume the asterisk (*) is a degree sign) 51* 43' 20" 51* + 43' + (20/60)' 51* + 43' + (1/3)' Answer: 51* 43 (1/3)' Hopefully this is answering the question you had. If you want to convert Minutes and seconds into decimal degrees, use either formula below: ((Seconds/60) + Minutes)/60 + Degrees or Degrees + (Minutes/60) + (seconds/3600)
