Radians? If so it would be $\displaystyle .0015\cdot\frac{180}{\pi}\approx{.086^{\circ}}$

Do you know how to get minutes and seconsd from taht?

I forget the process on how to do it, but the calculator gives that $\displaystyle .0015$ in DMS is $\displaystyle 0^{\circ} 5'9.397''$.

Hope that this somewhat helps!

Sorry, I'm wrong, but I figured out what we need to do.

Since .0015 is in degrees, we want to convert it to DMS.

Here are somethings we should know before converting:

In a full circle there are 360 degrees. Each degree is split up into 60 parts, each part being 1/60 of a degree. These parts are called minutes. Each minute is split up into 60 parts, each part being 1/60 of a minute. These parts are called seconds.(source: Degrees, Minutes, Seconds)

Let's see how many degrees there are in .0015 degrees:

rounding, we get 0, thus we state that it is $\displaystyle 0^{\circ}$.

Now let's see how many minutes are in .0015 degrees:

$\displaystyle .0015\times 60=.09$

This is very small, so we say that it is 0 minutes:

we now have: $\displaystyle 0^{\circ}0'$

Now, let's see how many seconds are there in .0015 degrees:

$\displaystyle .0015\times 3600=5.4$

Thus, .0015 degrees in DMS is $\displaystyle \color{red}\boxed{0^{\circ}0'5.4''}$

Hope this makes sense!
