    We know that is 311 degrees. Now we need to convert 0.678 into minutes. We can do this using proportions |dw:1328396986876:dw| so x = 40.68

    \[.678^{o}\times\frac{60\min}{1\deg}=40.68 \min\]

    So now we have 311 degrees 40 minutes and we use proportions again to convert 0.68 to seconds |dw:1328397061366:dw| where x = 40.8 and rounding to the nearest whole number we have 41. So the final answer is ..... 311 degrees 40 minutes 41 minutes
