# What is the latitude and longitude of the north pole and the south pole?

Question #51498. Asked by rlaj. (Oct 06 04 9:35 PM)

From what I can make out, the North Pole is 90 degrees north of the Equator, the South Pole is 90 degrees south of the Equator. Longitudinally, each is 45 degrees east of Greenwich. No doubt someone will be quick to point out that Iam wrong!

 In finding distance using latitude and longitude, what determines whether the abbreviations S, N, E or W appear after the latitude or longitude? For example, my latitude for my town is 40 degrees 37 minutes 43.1400 seconds. How do I know if an east, west, north or south should appear after it?

 "3-South" was a short lived series on MTV! It is my favorite show and I am probably the biggest fan of it. This quiz is really hard. So no fair weather fans!
