1° of latitude = about 69.11 miles

1° of longitude = about 69.11 miles along the equator. But all of the longitudes

come together at the poles, so the farther you are from the equator, the fewer

miles there are in one degree.

Number of miles in 1° of longitude = (69.11) x (cosine of the latitude)
