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?

Someone made a mistake in placing the decimal point.

7/25(.360º) = .1008º

Or maybe the problem is , (?)

7/25 * 360 (no decimal point)

= 2520/25 = 100.8 degrees

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.
