I know how to convert between decimal degress and degrees, minutes, seconds, but how do you enter degrees, minutes, and seconds directly?


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].

How do i enter 46degrees 15minutes into my ti-36x calculator?


Enter DMS (Degrees/Minutes/Seconds) values as D.MMSSs, using 0s as necessary:
  • D degrees (0-7 digits)
  • . decimal-point separator
  • MM minutes (must be 2 digits)
  • SS seconds (must be 2 digits)
  • s fractional part of a second
For example, enter
  • 46° 15' as 46.15.
  • 179° 9' 2.54" as 179.090254, note the 0s in front of the 9 and 2.
Before using a DMS value in a calculation, you must convert it to decimal with [2nd] [>DD].

How do you put degrees mins & secs in a ti 84 plus


The DMS symbols are available under the ANGLE menu
Press [2nd][APPS] (ANGLE)
Under that menu you find the degree and minute symbol. To enter the seconds unit you use the key sequence [ALPHA][+] (")
To enter 1deg 15 minutes and 37 seconds
1 [2nd][APPS] [1:deg] 15[2nd][Apps][2:'] 37 [ALPHA] [+]

To enter a number in decimal degrees (eg 15.37)
  1. If angle unit is the degree just enter 15.37
  2. If angle unit is the radian , you must specify the angle unit as degrees: To enter 15.37 degrees you type 15.37 [2nd][Apps][1: degree] [ENTER].
To convert from DMS to DD and from DD to DMS, you use the sequence [2nd][Apps][4:|=>DMS].

How do i enter 35 degrees 20 minutes into my TI-81 calculator


As far as I know, the TI-81 doesn't have a degree-minute-second entry mode the later TIs have. But to answer your question, you can always do it as:
 35 + 20 / 60
followed by ENTER if needed.

If you're in Radian mode instead of Degree mode, you'd have to follow up with MATH 6 to specify degrees instead of radians.
