To convert degrees and decimals of degrees (DD) to degrees, minutes, and seconds (DMS), referse the previous process.

**First:** Subtract the whole degrees. Convert the fraction to minutes. Multiply the decimal of a degree by 60 (the number of minutes in a degree). The whole number of the answer is the whole minutes.

**Second:** Subtract the whole minutes from the answer.

**Third:** Convert the decimal number remaining (from minutes) to seconds. Multiply the decimal by 60 (the number of seconds in a minute). The whole number of the answer is the whole seconds.

**Fourth:** If there is a decimal remaining, write that down as the decimal of a second.

Example: Convert 5.23456° to DMS.
5.23456° - 5° = 023456° 5° is the whole degrees
0.23456° x 60' per degree = 14.0736' 14 is the whole minutes
0.0736' x 60" per minutes = 4.416" 4.416" is the seconds

**DMS is stated as 5° 14' 4.416"**

**Degree practice 2:** Convert these DD to the DMS form.
