It's just maths. There are 60 minutes in a degree and 60 seconds in a
minute. So divide by 60 to convert to decimal.
If you have separate degrees minutes seconds, then decimal degrees is
X deg Y' Z" -> X + (Y / 60) + (Z / 3600)
If you have degrees with decimal minutes, then
X deg Y' -> X + (Y / 60)
