    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

    after that do I convert it into radians by pi rad/180 degrees? is that right?

    37.7775*pi/180=0.659.. radian
