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

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

Angle_{(Compass Points)} = Angle_{(Sextants)} × 60 / 11.25

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 compass points, i.e., Angle_{(Compass Points)}.

## Calculation

## Examples

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

Convert this measurement from sextants to Compass Points.

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The angle in sextants is:

Angle_{(Sextants)} = 6

**Formula:**

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

Angle_{(Compass Points)} = Angle_{(Sextants)} × 60 / 11.25

**Substitution:**

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

Angle_{(Compass Points)} = 6 × 60 / 11.25

Angle_{(Compass Points)} = 32

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **6 sextant** is equal to **32 compass point**.

The angle is **32 compass point**, in compass points.

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

Convert this division from sextants to Compass Points.

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The angle in sextants is:

Angle_{(Sextants)} = 2

**Formula:**

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

Angle_{(Compass Points)} = Angle_{(Sextants)} × 60 / 11.25

**Substitution:**

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

Angle_{(Compass Points)} = 2 × 60 / 11.25

Angle_{(Compass Points)} = 10.6667

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **2 sextant** is equal to **10.6667 compass point**.

The angle is **10.6667 compass point**, in compass points.

## 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.

## 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.
