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

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

Angle_{(Gradians)} = Angle_{(Sextants)} × 200 / 3

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 gradians, i.e., Angle_{(Gradians)}.

## Calculation

## Examples

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

Convert this measurement from sextants to Gradians.

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The angle in sextants is:

Angle_{(Sextants)} = 6

**Formula:**

The formula to convert angle from sextants to gradians is:

Angle_{(Gradians)} = Angle_{(Sextants)} × 200 / 3

**Substitution:**

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

Angle_{(Gradians)} = 6 × 200 / 3

Angle_{(Gradians)} = 400

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **6 sextant** is equal to **400 gon**.

The angle is **400 gon**, in gradians.

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

Convert this division from sextants to Gradians.

#### Answer:

**Given:**

The angle in sextants is:

Angle_{(Sextants)} = 2

**Formula:**

The formula to convert angle from sextants to gradians is:

Angle_{(Gradians)} = Angle_{(Sextants)} × 200 / 3

**Substitution:**

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

Angle_{(Gradians)} = 2 × 200 / 3

Angle_{(Gradians)} = 133.3333

**Final Answer:**

Therefore, **2 sextant** is equal to **133.3333 gon**.

The angle is **133.3333 gon**, in gradians.

## 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.

## 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.
