I have a new CFX-9850GB+ and have looked in the manual for an entry example for degrees, minutes and seconds. There is none and my experiments have led to failure. I need to be able to enter data in this format. Anyone know the syntax?

There is a function to convert from decimal to deg, min, sec. I can't seem to find one to do it the other way around, however you could use simple arithmetic to change it: deg + min / 60 + sec / 3600

I take it you are very familiar with those kind of transforms anyway, since you need to work with them. The calculator will store any value as a decimal, nomatter what you transform it to. the difference is only how you display it.

If you need to feed big chunks of data in this format into your calculator, I suggest you make a program that lets you input the values and change them for you, maybe storing them in a list or something.

I'm trying to avoid writing code to make the dms to decimal conversion. On the 9850gb+ there is a function that one can access by pressing OPTN f6 f5. The decimal to dms conversion is displayed only when there is output. the - ' " function is normally displayed. My experience with Casio calculators has been varied in that the function has worked differently with each model I've had.

If one enters an angle in HP format (i.e. ddd.mmss) then press the - ' " function you get a - after the number and it doesn't convert the angle to decimal. The inverse function works fine, however.

Anyone know the proper syntax of the function?

i tried this function with my cfx9850G.

if you want to convert 63? 15' 3" than you have to press in (Run-Menu)

1. 6
2. 3
3. OPTN' />+F6' />+F5' />+F4' /> (?''')
4. 1
5. 5
6. OPTN' />+F6' />+F5' />+F4' /> (?''')
7. 3
8. OPTN' />+F6' />+F5' />+F4' /> (?''')
9. EXE' />

and you have it convertet. to convert it back press OPTN' />+F6' />+F5' />+F5' />!

this should work with all calculators from casio!

bye

The degrees button on the casio calculator is the one with the little circle and three comma type things like this: '
it's above the ENG button, I hope i'm talking about the right thing
