I'm not clairvoyant, and need more information...
How many days a week does Marla get in the car and mash the gas?

x (in hours) = numminsdrivingperday/60 * numdays

x = (12*2)/60 * numdays

x = 2/5hrs * numdays

x = .4 * numdays

Of course, there MUST be more to it than this, right?

Hp 32sII enter degrees minutes seconds


According to the "HP 32SII RPN Scientific Calculator Owner's Manual" (at the link below), you just need to treat degrees, minutes, and seconds conversions as hours, minutes, and seconds. Use the left-shift and right-shift keys together with the 5 key to convert to decimal-fraction form (D.d format) and to minutes-seconds form (DD.MMSSss), respectively.

See pages 4-9 and 4-10.

How can i convert degrees,minutes and seconds to decimal degrees in a casio fx-82MS


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

2.45.35 hours - 0.23. 12 hours = ?. a short quick method please


Seconds: Subtract 12 from 35 to get 23.
Minutes: Subtract 23 from 45 to get 22
Hours: Subtract 0 from 2 to get 2.

Put the three together to get 2.22.23

This one was easy because there was no need for carry. If you do have to carry, just make sure you carry 60. Otherwise, it's exactly the same as when you learned subtraction in second grade.

Some calculators have conversions between decimal degrees/hours and degrees/hours:minutes:seconds. If you have such a calculator, you can convert both numbers to decimal, subtract, and convert back. Since you didn't specify what calculator you have, I can't tell whether this is an option for you.

How do i use dms button


Put an angle in decimal form, like 2.25 before the >DMS command. Press enter; it will tell you 2 degrees, 15' because 15 minutes is one-fourth (.25) of a degree (like 15 minutes are one-fourth of an hour).

How do i convert a degrees/minutes/second problem using the Casio Fx-115ES calculator? Can you provide an example? Thanks ZH


Use the key above the ENG key to enter a value in DMS form, ending each portion with the key. To convert it to decimal, press SD once (or twice if you get a fraction the first time).

Example: sine of 12 degrees 15 minutes:
sin 12 *** 15 *** =
where *** is the DMS key.

HOW DO YOU USE THE DEGREES MINUTE SECONDS FUNCTION


Hello,
To convert an angle from degrees (decimal degrees) to the sexagesimal notation (deg, min, seconds) use the key [DMS] the one between [(-) and [hyp].
Everytime you press the key, the displayed result is cast in the other form
EX; 12.58 [DMS] gives 12 deg 34 min 48 sec.
Suggestion: If you are doing many calculations with the sexagesimal format, use the decimal degree format, and only when you find the final result do you convert it to DMS.
Hope it helps.

Casio fx-115 es ---- turning decimal answers into radical form


Hello,

Sorry to disappoint you but you cannot do it due to the fact that the representation of irrational (SQRT(2), ..) and transcendental (e, pi, etc.) numbers on a calculator or even a computer is approximative : a number like sqrt(2) has an infinite number of decimal digits while the number of internal digits a calculator uses to store results is limited (10, 12, 15 or even 24).
Once an irrational or a transcendental number has been evaluated numerically it generally ceases to be exact.

If you want to manipulate algebraic expressions, you need a calculator that has a CAS (computer algebra system) operating system and a symbolic algebra option.

Some exemples of calculators with a CAS are The TI nspire CAS, the HP 48 series, HP 49, HP 50, Casio ClassPad3xx, the TI 89titatium, the TI Voyager 200PLT, the TI 92 and Ti 92Plus. The ones with a fullblown keyboard might not be accepted on certain standardized test.

You may also try to get some emulators on the Internet for the HPs or the TI 8xx and play with them on the computer.

Hope that helps.
