## What is the Formula to convert Sextants to Binary Degrees?

The formula to convert given angle from Sextants to Binary Degrees is:

Angle_{(Binary Degrees)} = Angle_{(Sextants)} × 256 / 6

Substitute the given value of angle in sextants, i.e., Angle_{(Sextants)} in the above formula and simplify the right-hand side value. The resulting value is the angle in binary degrees, i.e., Angle_{(Binary Degrees)}.

## Calculation

## Examples

### Consider that an old navigation tool, the sextant, measures angles in 6 sextants.

Convert this measurement from sextants to Binary Degrees.

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The angle in sextants is:

Angle_{(Sextants)} = 6

**Formula:**

The formula to convert angle from sextants to binary degrees is:

Angle_{(Binary Degrees)} = Angle_{(Sextants)} × 256 / 6

**Substitution:**

Substitute given weight **Angle _{(Sextants)} = 6** in the above formula.

Angle_{(Binary Degrees)} = 6 × 256 / 6

Angle_{(Binary Degrees)} = 256

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **6 sextant** is equal to **256 °**.

The angle is **256 °**, in binary degrees.

### Consider that an astronomer divides the night sky into 2 sextants for observation.

Convert this division from sextants to Binary Degrees.

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The angle in sextants is:

Angle_{(Sextants)} = 2

**Formula:**

The formula to convert angle from sextants to binary degrees is:

Angle_{(Binary Degrees)} = Angle_{(Sextants)} × 256 / 6

**Substitution:**

Substitute given weight **Angle _{(Sextants)} = 2** in the above formula.

Angle_{(Binary Degrees)} = 2 × 256 / 6

Angle_{(Binary Degrees)} = 85.3333

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **2 sextant** is equal to **85.3333 °**.

The angle is **85.3333 °**, in binary degrees.

## Sextants

Sextants are a unit of angular measurement used primarily in navigation and astronomy, representing one-sixth of a full circle, or 60 degrees. The sextant instrument, named after this unit, is used to measure the angle between two visible objects, such as a star and the horizon, enabling precise determination of latitude and longitude at sea.

## Binary Degrees

Binary degrees, or 'binary angles,' are a unit of angular measurement used in digital systems where angles are represented using binary numbers. This system is particularly useful in computer graphics, robotics, and digital signal processing, where binary calculations are more efficient than traditional degrees.
