40degrees 5.217minutes
41degrees - 40degreee
what is the answer?
Hello, James!
Since $\displaystyle 5.217\text{ minutes} \:=\:\frac{5.217}{60} \:=\:0.08695\text{ degrees}$.Simplify: .$\displaystyle \frac{40\text{ deg,}\,5.217\text{ min}}{41\text{ deg} - 40\text{ deg}}$
. . we have: .$\displaystyle \frac{40.08695\text{ deg}}{1\text{ deg}} \;=\;\boxed{40.08695}$
If you are allowed to use your calculator, it's easy to convert degrees and minutes to decimal numbers. If you can give me the model number of your calculator i can look up how yours works.
40 degrees and 5.217 minutes = 40.08695
41 degrees - 40 degrees = 1 degree = 1
$\displaystyle = \frac{40.08695}{1}$
