I've been asked this many times, how to use the Casio fx-9860G to convert degrees, minutes and seconds to decimal degrees and back, so, follow these instructions...

 

Convert D M S to decimal degrees

  1. Press OPTN

  2. Press F6 (>)

  3. Press F5 (ANGL)

  4. Enter degrees then press F4

  5. Enter minutes then press F4

  6. Enter seconds then press F4

  7. Press EXE

Convert decimal degrees to D M S

  1. Press OPTN

  2. Press F6 (>)

  3. Press F5 (ANGL)

  4. Press F6 (>)

  5. Enter degrees

  6. Press F3 (DMS)

  7. Press EXE

 

Try the above by converting 136.2591667° to 136° 15' 33" and back.

 

Cheers, Kevin
