1. Bend your knees and bend your body at a 45 degree angle.

(Does this sentence mean 'bend your knee at 45 degree angle or not'?)

2. Bend your knees and bend your body at a 45-degree angle.
(Is this correct? There is a hyphen between 45 and degree.)

asked by rfvv
  1. Neither sentence makes sense to me. I don't know how a person can bend his/her knees into a 45-degree angle AND THEN bend his/her body into a 45-degree angle. It sounds impossible to me!

    Yes. the hyphen is needed. Didn't I give you this link before?
