Longitude and latitude are descriptions of where places are located on Earth using a map.

Bangkok, Thailand is just southeast of this coordinate.
This coordinate is located in China.
5°S, 101°W isn't a country, it it in the Atlantic Ocean, Westof Central America.
The coordinates for Madrid are 40°26′n 3°42′w.
Those numbers are not appropriate as a set of geographic coordinates that locate a point on Earth. Latitude (the 'north' or 'south' number) can never be greater than 90 degrees. So there's no point on Earth that has these numbers as its coordinates. .
Two important lines of latitude pass through the South America- the Equator and the Tropic of Capricorn. The Equator passes through Brazil.

A meridian is an imaginary line (arc) that connects the Earth's poles at an angular distance from a reference arc, which is established as the Prime Meridian or 0° longitude.
No single country includes continuous territory from 0° to 60° W longitude. This includes lands on the Atlantic Ocean (western Europe, western Africa, eastern South America, and Canada). One country that does extend for a similar east-to-west range is Greenland, which stretches from about 15...
This parallel 38° S crosses extreme southern Australia from near Port Macdonnell in South Australia, passing just south of Melbourne in Victoria, to near Loch Sport (on the coast south of Bairnsdale in eastern Gippsland).

The spherical Earth has 360° of total longitude, divided into 180° east of the Prime Meridian and 180° west of the Prime Meridian. So the highest value for longitude is 180° (this is nominally the International Date Line, and 180° E is the same meridian as 180° W).

This location is near the city of Mecca in Saudi Arabia.
It is in the South Pacific Ocean. Near 170 degrees west longitude and 14 degrees south latitude.
Locations having a higher W longitude are farther west, and therefore "earlier" in standard time. Each 15° of longitude defines 1 hour's time difference, there being 360° of longitude divided by 24 hours. So the time at the location at 45°W will be 2 hours [(45-15)/15] earlier, or ...
