Check my math brdad.
Yes, that is correct according to my calculations.

As far as "S 38 degrees 15 minutes E", that looks correct, too - if fact I thought I posted that, but guess I edited it out. It's the same as S3815'E anyway, using words instead of symbols. But "S 38 degrees E 15 minutes" I don't think is in correct format. Glad I'm not the only one.

I converted to decimal (141.75) mainly because FizzyCalc requires it.
