# Coordinates

How do I find the coordinates? When I tried to check my solution for coordinates I got a message whitch said : "the latitude minutes is too large. Enter a number between 0 and"

Sounds like you entered something like 32 degrees 73 minutes or something similar..... minutes are just that - a fraction of a degree like the minutes in an hour - so from 0.000 to 59.999.

If our solution gives you a value over 59.999 for a coordinates minutes, you have done something wrong. This is unless the CO has the puzzle solve to give decimal degrees, ie something like 32.7346 degrees or similar.

If this all sounds foreign.... read this.... https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Geographic_coordinate_conversion

Try retyping them in. Example N45 15.789 W093 22.658.

You may have simply placed the dot in the wrong place.
