Question about HP 48G Graphic Calculator

To enter that number in DMS (or HMS) you type in 27.2842.

To convert it to decimal degrees

you use left SHIFT (mauve) [4] (TIME)

then [NXT] followed by [C] (HMS-->). The display will show 27.47833333

Pressing the [-->HMS] menu key (C) will give you back 27.2842.

On any calculator, let's convert degrees-minutes-second to degrees and then we will do the reverse.

Let's start with the number of seconds in a minute - 60, so we must take the seconds and divide by 60 to get the number of minutes. Next, add the number of minutes. The number of minutes in a degree is 60, so we take this total and divide by 60. Now we add the number of degrees to get out final answer.

Example: 35 degrees 50 minutes 32 seconds

(32/60 + 50)/60 + 35 = 35.842222 degrees

Just out of interest, let's start with 35.842222 degrees and convert it to degrees-minutes-seconds. We know it is 35 degrees, the whole number. Now we have to determine the minutes and seconds. Start by subtracting 35 to get the decimal 0.842222. Now multiply by 60 to get the number of minutes. I get 50.5332. Subtract 50 from this and multiply again by 60. I get 31.9992, which rounds to 32 seconds.

Good luck.

I don't think I have that calculator, but let's work through it with any calculator.

Let's say our heading is 45.3275 degrees. So we know it is 45 degrees, so subtract 45 from the number and multiply by 60, since there are 60 minutes in a degree. I get 19.65. So now we have 45 degrees and 19 minutes. Subtract the 19 minutes to calculate the number of seconds by multiplying the result by 60. I get 39 seconds. Overall, we have 45 degrees, 19 minutes, and 39 seconds.

Good luck.

Use the DMS key marked degree, apostrophe, double quotation mark.

Lets us call it [DMS]

To enter an angle in degree minutes seconds or hour, minutes, seconds, type in the number of degrees, press the [DMS] key, enter the number of seconds, press the [DMS] key, enter the number of seconds then the [DMS] key. Press = the calculator displays the value in DMS units. If you press the DMS key again the number displayed is converted to decimal degrees.

Example:enter 12 degrees, 15 minutes, and 25 seconds

12 [DMS]15[DMS]25[DMS] =

Calculator displays 12 deg 15'25"

Press the DMS key again and you see 12.2569444

Press the DMS button to convert between decimal degrees and degrees-minutes-seconds.

The DMS button is marked with the degree, minute, and second symbols. It's located above the [ENG] key, which is located above the [8] key.

For full details, start with the "Degree, Minute, Second (Sexagesimal) Calculations" section beginning on page E-22 of the manual. If you need a manual, you may download a copy here.

At first, you have to use DEGREE mode and after that you can convert your angles into DMS mode. See captured image below

Cristina,

You might be referring to something else, so let me try to knock out two birds with one stone.

The arcsine function is the inverse sine function. It will take a ratio input and produce a degree/radian output. It isn't exactly transforming anything into degrees. Instead, it is telling you the corresponding angle that goes with the ratio of opposite over hypotenuse (your input).

With that said, I am going to try to answer your question with two possible solutions.

1. To find the arcsine of a value/input (between -1 and 1) you simply have to press {[2ND]} {[SIN]} {["NUMBER"]}. For example, if I wanted the arcsine of one-half I would press {[2ND]} {[SIN]} {[.]} {[5]} {[=]}. The computer would display 30 (degrees) because the sine of thirty degrees is one-half, therefore the arcsine of one-half is 30 degrees. Inverse functions in math are often written with a faux-exponent of negative one. Inverse sine (ie arcsine) should be written in blue above the sine button on your calculator.

2. To convert a compass reading into a concrete degree measure you will NOT use arcsine. Instead, you can use the Degree-Minute-Second key which is on the TI-30X. The degree portion is naturally symbolized by the superscript o; the minute is symbolized by the single apostrophe mark, the second symbol is the quotation mark. So, to convert a compass reading of 10 degrees-30 minutes - 30 seconds you would type {[10]} {[o ' "]} {[=]} {[30]} {[o ' "]} {[ -> ]} {[=]} {[30]} {[o ' "]} {[->]} {[->]} {[=]} {[=]}. The calculator should display 10.50833333, which represents the hardcore angle measure that corresponds with 10-degrees-30minutes-30seconds. Also, it should be known that this is a much better thing to do by hand because it will deeply ingrain the basic mathematics going on. Even though we're talking about degree measures, the minutes & seconds are still at a 60 unit benchmark: meaning that there are 60 minutes in a degree and 60 seconds in a minute. Therefore, 30 minutes & 30 seconds is 30.5 seconds, which is 50.83333 percent of 1 degree. Thus, 10.5083333 degreeees. Also, you can think of it as 3600 seconds in a degree, therefore you had 1830 seconds which equated to 50.83333% of 1 degree. Thus, 10.50833333 degrees total.

Alright...I hope that helps you with either question you might have been referring to. Also, I hope you enjoyed the minor math lesson involved here. Maybe you already knew it. If that was the case then I am sorry. Either way, I own a TI-30XB Solar (among many other TI Calculators) and I highly doubt that the buttons on my calculator are starkly different from yours.

If you have more calculator or even math questions just post them on here and I'll hack away.

Arrivederci.

Hello,

Use the witeView Mode or fraction mode

20000s /3600s/h gives 5 full hours, remain 2000 seconds,

2000s/60s/h gives 33 minutes remain 20 seconds.

Result is 5h 33 min 20 sec

Do not confuse the DMS degree, minute, seconds with th hour minute seconds.

Hope it helps.

if you mean degrees like the degree/minute/second thing:
lets say you have 24.12
there is a button that has a dot, and 3 commas (it's located next to the negative button) that will convert that number to degrees. input your decimal, press the equal sign, and then press that degree button and it will convert 24.12 to degrees, minutes, and seconds. the solution is 24 degrees, 7 minutes, and 12 seconds.

ALL you need to do is use [Action] or [Interactive] menu --->[Transformation] --> [dms] (to convert from degrees, minutes, seconds to (degrees) form) or [toDMS] (for the opposite process).

Good luck, mates!
