## What is the Formula to convert Compass Points to Turns?

The formula to convert given angle from Compass Points to Turns is:

Angle_{(Turns)} = Angle_{(Compass Points)} / 32

To convert any given angle from compass points to turns, substitute the given value of Angle_{(Compass Points)} in the above formula, simplify the right-hand side value.

## Calculation

## Examples

### Consider that a ship's navigation system shifts by 8 compass points to adjust its course.

Convert this direction from compass points to Turns.

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The angle in compass points is:

Angle_{(Compass Points)} = 8

**Formula:**

The formula to convert angle from compass points to turns is:

Angle_{(Turns)} = Angle_{(Compass Points)} / 32

**Substitution:**

Substitute given weight **Angle _{(Compass Points)} = 8** in the above formula.

Angle_{(Turns)} = 8 / 32

Angle_{(Turns)} = 0.25

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **8 compass point** is equal to **0.25 turn**.

The angle is **0.25 turn**, in turns.

### Consider that a hiker adjusts their direction by 4 compass points to stay on track.

Convert this direction from compass points to Turns.

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The angle in compass points is:

Angle_{(Compass Points)} = 4

**Formula:**

The formula to convert angle from compass points to turns is:

Angle_{(Turns)} = Angle_{(Compass Points)} / 32

**Substitution:**

Substitute given weight **Angle _{(Compass Points)} = 4** in the above formula.

Angle_{(Turns)} = 4 / 32

Angle_{(Turns)} = 0.125

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **4 compass point** is equal to **0.125 turn**.

The angle is **0.125 turn**, in turns.

## Compass Points

Compass points are a unit of angular measurement used in navigation and cartography to represent directions on a compass. Traditionally, the compass is divided into 32 points, each representing 11.25 degrees. Compass points are essential in maritime navigation, aviation, and orienteering, providing a simple and standardized way to describe directions.

## Turns

A turn, also known as a revolution or full circle, represents a complete rotation around a central point and is equal to 360 degrees or 2π radians. Turns are used in various disciplines, including engineering, navigation, and geometry, to describe full rotations. The concept of turns is deeply rooted in both mathematical theory and practical applications, such as in the design of gears and wheels.
