Time Conversions

The HP 35s can convert between decimal and hexagesimal formats for numbers.
This is especially useful for time and angles measured in degrees. For example, in
decimal format an angle measured in degrees is expressed as D.ddd..., while in
hexagesimal the same angle is represented as D.MMSSss, where D is the integer
pat of the degree measure, ddd... is the fractional part of the degree measure, MM
is the integer number of minutes, SS is the integer part of the number of seconds,
and ss is the fractional part of the number of seconds.
To convert between decimal format and hours minutes, and seconds:
1. Enter the number you wish to convert

2. Press
