# Convert - Hewlett Packard

This is a discussion on Convert - Hewlett Packard ; In there an easy way, on the 50g, to convert a decimal angle into hours and vice versa? For example I have 16,69231389, which converted yields 16h41m32s. Daniel....

In there an easy way, on the 50g, to convert a decimal angle into
hours and vice versa?

For example I have 16,69231389, which converted yields 16h41m32s.

Use the \->HMS command, under the TIME menu.

16.69231389 \->HMS

returns 16.4132330004, which is the 50g's awkward way of representing
16h41m32.330004s.

Denoting integral digits by upper case and fractional digits by lower
case,

The HMS\-> command converts HH.hhhhhhhhhh to HH.MMSSssss and
\->HMS converts HH.MMSSssss back to HH.hhhhhhhhhh, although there are
sometimes minor roundoff errors in combining them, i,e,. the original is
not quite restored by the two operations in sequence.
