## 6 Figure Grid Reference Owen BowditchEdit

The 6 Figure Grid Reference is used to pinpoint exact locations. The 6 Figure Grid Reference is used all

over the world, in maps.

The 6 Figure Grid Reference works in two parts the first 3 numbers are based on the X axis (Eastings)

and the last 3 numbers are based on the Y axis (Northings).

The 6 Figure Grid Reference has two parts and like a 4 Figure Grid Reference we take the numbers that

are on the grid. For example the farm and the school:

This gives us a rough estimate of where the farm and school are. We then have to find the last figures

for the x and y axis. Imagine between 34-35 is divided by 10, we get 341, 342 etc. The school is located

at 342 on the X axis and we do the the same with the Y axis and the school is located at 813. We do this

with the farm as well and we get this:

Farm- 34_82_

School- 34_81_

Answer:

Farm- 345821

School- 342813
