...within the circumference. The circumference of every circle is usually supposed to be divided into 860 **equal parts, called DEGREES ; each degree into 60 equal parts, called MINUTES ; each** minute into 60 equal parts, called SECONDS ; and so on. Degrees, minutes, and seconds, are thus expressed,... | |

...Circumference, and the Measure of Angles. § 393. The Circumference of every circle is conceived to be divided **into 360 equal parts called degrees, each degree into 60 equal parts called minutes,** and each minute into 60 equal parts called seconds. Degrees, minutes, and seconds, are denoted thus... | |
