degree;min;sec question
I have a question about this problem. I wrote notes for them but i didn't write them well enough for me to reread them over to understand it.
-------------------------
37 degree 46 min 39 sec

I am suppose to convert it to degree ---> radians

37+(46/60)+(39/36000)= which gives me the degree

after that do I convert it into radians by pi rad/180 degrees? is that right?
I also wrote down the answer and it was 0.2099 pi

Since there are 60 seconds in a minute, and 60 minutes in an hour
this should be:

37+(46/60)+(39/3600)=37.7775
