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.

I presume that x is the measure in degrees of the third angle. Use the fact the sum of the interior angle of a triangle is equal to 180 degrees.

x+128+37=180

x+165=180

x=180-165=15 degrees.

x+128+37=180

x+165=180

x=180-165=15 degrees.

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].

When entering the information it only shows the degree symbol. If you press enter or type inthe formula, then the answer will show the Degree, Minutes, and seconds. It seems to be the way it was program by Casio. It still seems to work fine for entering that information

Since one degree is defined as one three hundred sixtieth (1/360) of a circle .Where as 1minute is (1/60) part of a degree and 1second is (1/60) part of minute .They have following relation :
1 degree = 0.0167 minute = 0.000278 sec .
You can convert them easily using your calculator .

Hello,

Look at the column of keys under the ALPHA key. You have the integral, the square root, and then the key that has a degree sign, an apostrophe and a double closing quotation mark. That is the one you use to enter the angle in sexagesimal notation. To simplify my task I will symbolize the key with [DMS], degree, minute , second.

To calculate cos (32° 45')

you press

[COS] 32[DMS]45 [DMS] ) and press [=] The result si 0.841039013

Hope it helps.

Latitude is N or S, longitude is E or W, correct.

When entering degrees, minutes and seconds, you dont have to type the double apostrophe at the end off seconds, the device will understand...

ALT and LONG can also be seen as decimal degrees,

as in your case N48.87329 E8.6923

The TT device understands them both, just type them in....

Enter than angle as 32.2010 then press left-shift [->HR] to convert to decimal degrees.

The ->HR function (and the companion ->H.MS are for working in hours-minutes-seconds, but they work just as well for degrees-minutes-seconds.
