Hey, i'd like to know what this means:

Tropical monsoon forests are located "between 10° and 25°N and S of the equator".

What does this mean? I know that the 25°N and S of equator means that region near the equator, but what is that "10°"?

  • Geography -

    There are two regions or latitude bands where the monoson forests may exist:
    (1) between 10 and 25 degrees north latitude and (2) between 25 and 10 degrees south latitude. The equator is between these two bamds.

    If you understand where 25 degrees north latitude is, you should also understand where 10 degrees north is.
