The B.9 and 6.0 indicate the coordinates to locate Caesars Palace. You can use the part before the decimal points to get a ballpark figure, but we've narrowed it down even more, into tenths for those of you who are sticklers. By drawing a line which intersects these points we can locate the exact spot as indicated on the picture below.

Another Example? The coordinates for the Las Vegas Convention Center are:


The location of this is indicated by the second set of lines on the diagram below.

Next Time on Learning with LVLG: How about an online vector math calculator to automatically determine the aerial distance between any two selected hotels or landmarks... let's see SQRT((E.4 - B.9)**2 + (6.0 - 4.3)**2) = ...
