    Question Rotation/Turn

    The instructions for adjusting the cutting blade on a
    lawnmower say, “Adjusting the screws is a very sensitive
    procedure. 1/6th of a turn is considered a major adjustment.”
    Is a 25 degree rotation more or less than 1/6th of a turn?

    Can you please show me how to work this out and get the answer?

    Re: Rotation/Turn

    How many degrees are there in one rotation? How many degrees are there in 1/6 of a rotation?

    ... then you need to look up the number of degrees in one rotation.
