  1. convert radians to degrees, as usual. Then multiply by 60 and 60 on the decimal parts:

    23.461°
    .461 * 60 = 27.66'
    .66 * 60 = 40"
    So, 23°27'40"

    Do the reverse to go the other way. Divide by 60 and 3600 to convert ' and " to °.

    Now use that knowledge along with the fact that 360° = 2pi radians.
