Hello Melody:

 

There is a calculator online that you can download for free, which does this type of conversion and many things besides. It has a range that can go as high as 10^billion.........etc. It is an android calculator developed for Google and is called "HiPPER Calc". Just google its name and you will see it.

11.536959032815 degrees

 

it is a bit fiddly and you are probably better off to uses a different calc for this BUT

you know it is 11 degrees

11.536959032815-11=0.536959032815

0.536959032815*60 = 32.2175419689

so  that is 32 minutes

32.2175419689-32 = 0.2175419689

0.2175419689*60 = 13.052518134  

 

so

11.536959032815 degrees = 11 degrees, 32 minutes and 13.05 seconds

Thank you !! And I know that I should  use casio or one of the other scientific calculators, but I didn't have time to buy one and none of online calculators has dms button. Why don't they make an online calculator with  that button ?

I looked and could not find one either ://

That is really strange I think.......

Maybe someone else can find one???

 

There are a few sites like this one though

http://www.rapidtables.com/convert/number/degrees-to-degrees-minutes-seconds.htm

 

Maybe that would help ?

Thanks guest - yes it looks like a great downloadable free calculator and it definitely has the degrees/minutes/seconds button  !

 

Here is the download page

http://hiperdevelopment.wix.com/hipercalc

 

and this is what it looks like:                    

 

 It has even got a BS button.  All calculators should have one of those !!!     cheeky
