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

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

Angle_{(Compass Points)} = Angle_{(Gradians)} / 12.5

Substitute the given value of angle in gradians, i.e., Angle_{(Gradians)} in the above formula and simplify the right-hand side value. The resulting value is the angle in compass points, i.e., Angle_{(Compass Points)}.

## Calculation

## Examples

### Consider that a precision engineering tool adjusts by 100 gradians.

Convert this angle from gradians to Compass Points.

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The angle in gradians is:

Angle_{(Gradians)} = 100

**Formula:**

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

Angle_{(Compass Points)} = Angle_{(Gradians)} / 12.5

**Substitution:**

Substitute given weight **Angle _{(Gradians)} = 100** in the above formula.

Angle_{(Compass Points)} = 100 / 12.5

Angle_{(Compass Points)} = 8

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **100 gon** is equal to **8 compass point**.

The angle is **8 compass point**, in compass points.

### Consider that a civil engineer designs a slope with an angle of 90 gradians.

Convert this angle from gradians to Compass Points.

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The angle in gradians is:

Angle_{(Gradians)} = 90

**Formula:**

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

Angle_{(Compass Points)} = Angle_{(Gradians)} / 12.5

**Substitution:**

Substitute given weight **Angle _{(Gradians)} = 90** in the above formula.

Angle_{(Compass Points)} = 90 / 12.5

Angle_{(Compass Points)} = 7.2

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **90 gon** is equal to **7.2 compass point**.

The angle is **7.2 compass point**, in compass points.

## Gradians

Gradians, also known as grads or gon, are a unit of angular measurement where a full circle is divided into 400 gradians. This unit is particularly useful in fields such as surveying and civil engineering, especially in some European countries. One gradian is equivalent to 0.9 degrees, making it convenient for calculating right angles and dividing circles into decimal fractions.

## 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.
