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

- 46° 15' as 46.15.
- 179° 9' 2.54" as 179.090254, note the 0s in front of the 9 and 2.

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)

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)

- If angle unit is the degree just enter 15.37
- 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].

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.

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.

Usually answered in minutes!

i am getting the degrees and minutes input,but i am still having trouble inputing the seconds portion. it must be able to do it because if i do a conversion from degrees to bearings the seconds portion of the bearing shows in the answer.
