Tutor: None Selected Time limit: 1 Day

I am not sure how to do the multiplication at the end of this problem. Convert the degree to radians. 58degrees40'. I can get to the part where it looks like (170degrees/3) multiply by (pi/180degrees).

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

First you have to convert the minutes to degrees. 40' = 40/60 = 0.67 degrees

Then 58degrees40' = 58.67 degrees

To convert to radians we multiply by pi/180

(58.67)(pi/180) = 1.02 radians

Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.

Could you write out how the multiplication part would break down at the end. The (58.67)(pi/180) part
