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

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

Angle_{(Compass Points)} = Angle_{(Minutes)} / 675

Substitute the given value of angle in minutes, i.e., Angle_{(Minutes)} 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 an astronomer adjusts a telescope by 15 minutes of arc to focus on a distant star.

Convert this angle from minutes to Compass Points.

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The angle in minutes is:

Angle_{(Minutes)} = 15

**Formula:**

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

Angle_{(Compass Points)} = Angle_{(Minutes)} / 675

**Substitution:**

Substitute given weight **Angle _{(Minutes)} = 15** in the above formula.

Angle_{(Compass Points)} = 15 / 675

Angle_{(Compass Points)} = 0.02222222222

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **15 '** is equal to **0.02222222222 compass point**.

The angle is **0.02222222222 compass point**, in compass points.

### Consider that a surveyor sets the angle of a theodolite to 10 minutes for precise measurement.

Convert this angle from minutes to Compass Points.

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The angle in minutes is:

Angle_{(Minutes)} = 10

**Formula:**

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

Angle_{(Compass Points)} = Angle_{(Minutes)} / 675

**Substitution:**

Substitute given weight **Angle _{(Minutes)} = 10** in the above formula.

Angle_{(Compass Points)} = 10 / 675

Angle_{(Compass Points)} = 0.01481481481

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **10 '** is equal to **0.01481481481 compass point**.

The angle is **0.01481481481 compass point**, in compass points.
