00:00:01.900 --> 00:00:11.020
Express the angle 52.113611 degrees in degrees, minutes, and seconds.
00:00:12.280 --> 00:00:21.350
Before we start this question, we need to remember that one degree is equal to 60 minutes and one minute is equal to 60 seconds.
00:00:22.840 --> 00:00:30.770
As a result, our first step is to convert 0.113611 degrees into minutes.
00:00:31.630 --> 00:00:38.020
In order to do this, we multiply 0.113611 by 60.
00:00:39.410 --> 00:00:44.810
This is equal to 6.81666 minutes.
00:00:46.040 --> 00:00:49.870
We now know that we have 52 degrees and six minutes.
00:00:50.300 --> 00:00:53.610
Our final step is to work out how many seconds we have.
00:00:54.780 --> 00:01:02.410
In order to do this, we need to convert 0.81666 minutes into seconds.
00:01:03.580 --> 00:01:11.940
We do this by multiplying 0.81666 by 60, as there are 60 seconds in a minute.
00:01:13.380 --> 00:01:24.170
This is equal to 48.9996 seconds, which we can round to 49 seconds to the nearest second.
00:01:25.650 --> 00:01:40.580
We can now say that the angle 52.113611 degrees expressed in degrees, minutes, and seconds is 52 degrees, six minutes, and 49 seconds.
