...degrees is measured by ^ of the circumference. 185. For accurate measurement each degree is divided **into 60 equal parts called minutes and each minute into 60 equal parts called seconds.** The symbols of degrees, minutes and seconds are °, ', ", respectively. To express 23 degrees, 47 minutes... | |

...passing around the earth on its surface ? 444. In measuring circumferences, each degree is divided in **60 equal parts, called minutes, and each minute into 60 equal parts, called seconds.** In this measure, degrees, minutes, and seconds are written with symbols. Thus, 3 degrees, 25 minutes,... | |

...account of its size. We therefore subdivide a right angle into 90 equal parts called degrees, each degree **into 60 equal parts called minutes, and each minute into 60 equal parts called seconds.** The symbols used for a degree, a minute, and a second are 1°, 1', and 1". Thus 10° 11' 12" means... | |
