# How to Calculate and Solve for Same Latitude – Different Sides of the Prime Meridian | Latitude and Longitude

Last Updated on November 23, 2019

The image above represents same latitude – different sides of the prime meridian.

To compute for same latitude – different sides of the prime meridian, two essential parameters are needed and these parameters are value of A and value of B.

The formula for calculating same latitude – different sides of the prime meridian:

θ = A + B

Where;

θ = angular difference
A = Value of A
B = Value of B

Let’s solve an example;
Find the angular difference when the value of A is 10 and the value of B is 12.

This implies that;

A = Value of A = 10
B = Value of B = 12

θ = A + B
θ = 10° + 12°
θ = 22°

Therefore, the angular difference is 22°.

Calculating the Value of A when the Angular Difference and the Value of B is Given.

A = θ – B

Where;

A = Value of A
θ = angular difference
B = Value of B

Let’s solve an example;
Find the value of A when the angular difference is 32 and the value of B is 14.

This implies that;

θ = angular difference = 32
B = Value of B = 14

A = θ – B
A = 32° – 14°
A = 18°

Therefore, the value of A is 18°.

Calculating the Value of B when the Angular Difference and the Value of A is Given.

B = θ – A

Where;

B = Value of B
θ = angular difference
A = Value of A

Let’s solve an example;
Given that the Angular difference is 50 and the value of A is 22. Find the value of B?

This implies that;

θ = angular difference = 50
A = Value of A = 22

B = θ – A
B = 50 – 22
B = 28

Therefore, the value of B is 28°.
