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.

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

Convert the Cartesian coordinates to polar coordinates (r, Theta). The calculator can do that. Press the SHIFT [+] key combination. Calculator will display Pol(. Type in the Cartesian coordinates (x,y), close the right parenthesis and press [=]. The calculator will display the radius r and the angle theta.

If you want to convert from polar to Cartesian coordinates, use the SHIFT [-] (Rec) key combination. Enter the radius and the angle separated by a comma, close the right parenthesis and press [=]

Be careful, the angle unit you use (radian or degree) will affect the result.

The manual for your calculator can be found here: http://support.casio.com/pdf/004/fx-82ES_83ES.etc_Eng.pdf

To input a sexagesimal value [this is another word for Degrees/Minutes/Seconds], you need to follow the instructions on page E-21 of the manual.

- Type in the degrees
- Press the "degrees" button. This is located two buttons above the "8" button and looks like the degrees symbol and some commas
- Type in the minutes
- Press the "degrees" button again.

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

The conversion from rectangular to polar coordinates requires the calculation of an angle . If the angle unit that the calculator is configured for is different from the one you have in mind, you get (not erroneous results) but unexpected ones.

If the angle unit under [MODE] is radian, the angle you get in the conversion is in radians. Similarly, if the angle unit is degree, the angle obtained after coordinate conversion is in degrees.

Check your angle unit and restart your calculations.

To convert decimal degrees to minutes and Seconds (i.e DD° MM' SS")

i.e: you have 27.2926 N

You know the DD will be 27

This leaves 0.2926 to express as MM'SS".

.2926 x 60 = 17.556 = MM' = 17'.

This leaves 0.556 minutes to convert to seconds (SS")

0.556 x 60 = 33.36= SS" = 33.36

Therefore: 27.2926° N =**29° 17' 33.36" N**

Now to go the other way (and to give some proof to the validity of the above...)

29° 17' 33.36" N

DD°+(MM'/60)+(SS"/3600)= 29°+(17'/60)+(33.36"/3600) =27.2926

ALL you need to do is use [Action] or [Interactive] menu --->[Transformation] --> [dms] (to convert from degrees, minutes, seconds to (degrees) form) or [toDMS] (for the opposite process).

Good luck, mates!

Good luck, mates!
