Maybe you could convert your time value to a single unit (e.g., 1 hour, 15 minutes = 60 minutes in an hour
+ 15 minutes = 75 minutes; or, 75 * 60 seconds in a
minute = 4500 seconds). Then you could multiply the result by however much you want to multiply it with a separate calculator.

Yes, but that's an awful lot of work, and requires a calculator anyway!

Since I'm constantly correcting for precession (daily), it makes sense for me to
use a calculator that has deg-mins-secs built in - they are not expensive; I just
replaced an old one - it only cost about \$15

Love, Diana

• Yes Diana, it does make sense! Could you tell us the exact model number of your new calculator? Many thanks! Sherri ... expensive; I

Yes Diana, it does make sense!  Could you tell us the exact model number of your new calculator?

Many thanks!  Sherri
=============================
The one I have is Casio fx-250HC "fraction" calculator
but there are many models that would do as well -
No need to go to anyplace special - I found mine in a
bubble pack in a Duane Reade drugstore!

Look for one that has a key that says (degree symbol-tiny o, elevated) 9 99 -
usually 2nd key down from the top, 2nd key in from the left):

when entering precession correction (I use 0 deg 0 mins 50.23 secs), always
enter it in full (0, 9 99 key, 0, 9 99 key, 50.23, 9,99 key)

results come out in decimals; press blank upper left key, then the 9 99 key
again, and the decimal turns into degrees-mins-secs.

Love, Diana

• Thank you Diana, okay, your key description was definately key, which I located on this model: Casio FX-115ES Advanced Scientific Calculator with 2-Line
