I need someone to help explain how this math problem works. I am not sure how to convert this fraction below to arrive at 100.8 degress.
7/25 .360 degrees=100.8 degrees
How did this answer of 100.8 degrees come about in this equation?

PsyDAG,
Someone made a mistake in placing the decimal point.
7/25(.360º) = .1008º 
math 
Helper,
Or maybe the problem is , (?)
7/25 * 360 (no decimal point)
= 2520/25 = 100.8 degrees

Reiny,
Helper is right.
In many parts of the world, the . is used to mean multiplication, and a , is used to show the decimal point.
e.g. €4,56 would be 4 Euros and 56 cents.
