Hello,
In the main menu screen press the Action menu, then Transformation submenu. At the bottom of the drop down list you have dms an toDMS.
If you enter toDMS(18.58) you get dms(18,34,48). Then if you use dms( on the calculated result: dms(ans) you get 18.58
So if you have a result in deg, min, sec you convert it to decimal degrees by making use of the dms( command.

Hope it helps.

You have a key, the label of which is the degree sign, the apostrophe and the double quotation mark. It is located between the change sign key (-) and the [HYP] key.

To enter an angle with degrees, minutes and seconds you use the key to separate between numbers
Ex: 18 deg 0' 45" you press 18 [Deg ' "] 0 [Deg ' "]45 [Deg ' "] [=] As you type the calculator displays 18 deg 0 deg 45 deg but the result will show correctly. You have to press the key after the seconds figure, otherwise you get a syntax error.

While the foregoing result is still in answer memory, if you press the [Deg ' "] key the result will be displayed in decimal degrees.

The key is used to enter the DMS values and also to toggle between DMS and D.D.

Press the SD key (just above DEL). You may have to press it twice if the first press produces a fraction.

Enter it as DD.MMSS and then press 2nd [DMS-DD] to convert it to decimal for further calculations.

For example, to enter 21 degrees 34 minutes 45 seconds, enter 21.3445 then press 2nd [DMS-DD].

Yes. Pressing the DMS key (two keys above the 8 key) when a result is displayed toggles the result between decimal degrees and degrees-minutes-seconds.

For example, to convert 3.5 degrees, press 3 . 5 = and you'll see 3.5. Now press DMS and you'll see 3 degrees 30 minutes 0 seconds.

### 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

### How to switch from the decimal degree to degrees, minutes, seconds

Keys 1. I displays the following menu that lets you change the angle mode setting to DEG, RAD, and GRD without affecting the value in the display. DEG Sets degree mode. RAD Sets radian mode. GRD Sets gradient mode. The default setting is DEG. 2. = displays a menu that lets you specify the unit of an angle. º Specifies degrees. å Specifies minutes. æ Specifies seconds. r Specifies radians. g Specifies gradients. DMS Lets you convert an angle from decimal degrees to DMS notation. Notes · The examples on the transparency masters assume all default settings. · Angles with a trig function ignore the angle mode setting and display results in the original unit. Otherwise, angles (without a trig function) are converted and displayed according to the angle mode setting. · You enter decimal-degree angles the same as you would any other number. · For decimal/DMS conversions, the calculator interprets all values as degrees, regardless of the angle-unit setting. · DMS angles are entered as º (degrees), ´ (minutes), and ´´ (seconds You watched 2 videos that were 2:05 (2 hours and 5 minutes) and 1:46 (1 hour and 46 minutes) in length.

### 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.
