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

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

Angle_{(Degrees)} = Angle_{(Sextants)} × 60

To convert any given angle from sextants to degrees, substitute the given value of Angle_{(Sextants)} in the above formula, simplify the right-hand side value.

## Calculation

## Examples

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

Convert this measurement from sextants to Degrees.

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The angle in sextants is:

Angle_{(Sextants)} = 6

**Formula:**

The formula to convert angle from sextants to degrees is:

Angle_{(Degrees)} = Angle_{(Sextants)} × 60

**Substitution:**

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

Angle_{(Degrees)} = 6 × 60

Angle_{(Degrees)} = 360

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **6 sextant** is equal to **360 °**.

The angle is **360 °**, in degrees.

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

Convert this division from sextants to Degrees.

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The angle in sextants is:

Angle_{(Sextants)} = 2

**Formula:**

The formula to convert angle from sextants to degrees is:

Angle_{(Degrees)} = Angle_{(Sextants)} × 60

**Substitution:**

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

Angle_{(Degrees)} = 2 × 60

Angle_{(Degrees)} = 120

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **2 sextant** is equal to **120 °**.

The angle is **120 °**, in 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.

## Degrees

Degrees are a widely used unit of angular measurement, especially in geometry, trigonometry, and everyday applications. A full circle is divided into 360 degrees, with each degree further divided into 60 minutes and each minute into 60 seconds. Degrees offer an intuitive way to express angles, and they are prevalent in fields ranging from navigation to astronomy, as well as in common day-to-day measurements.
