# How do you convert -3.58^circ to D^circM'S'' form?

Dec 15, 2016

${3.58}^{o} = {3}^{o} 34 ' 48 ' '$

#### Explanation:

In ${D}^{o} M ' S ' '$ "form, one degree is equivalent to $60$ minutes and each minute is equivalent to $60$ seconds.

As such, as we have complete ${3}^{o}$, remaining ${0.58}^{o}$ is equivalent to $0.58 \times 60 = 34.8 '$

As we have fractional minutes $0.8 '$, number of seconds are $0.8 \times 60 = 48 ' '$

and hence ${3.58}^{o} = {3}^{o} 34 ' 48 ' '$
