Just joined the site and have a question. I don't know if this is a question for the trigonometry forum but I'm not sure where to ask. I have a question about GPS coordinates (degrees, minutes and seconds). I have to find a spot and need to add 73 minutes to the minutes of the coordinates 071* 59.922 and add 10 minutes to the minutes of the coordinates 40* 58.647 to come up with the correct coordinates but I was never very good at math. I know once the minutes exceed 60 you have to add to the degrees but I'm having trouble with the conversion. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks for trying to help but your confusing me more. LOL! Here's an example; If the number you had to add to the West coords was 62 then the answer would be 73 degrees, 01 minutes and 922 seconds. I was never any good at math and thanks for your time.
Does this help?
