124°18' 30"

 

We can  use  this "fraction"  system....keep the degrees....divide the minutes by 60....divide the seconds by 3600

 

124  +  18 / 60  +  30/3600  =   124.3083°

 

 

Think you can do 2  based on this, Manuel??.....

Sorry, Manuel...I got distracted...I meant to write:

 

"Keep  the degrees....divide the minutes by 60   and the seconds  by 3600"

 

See my corrected answer!!

 

Here's the second one

 

 

39  +  50/60  + 35/ 3600   =  39.8431°
