yes, its simple degrees minutes and seconds can be added as follows
12034'25''+ 23040'10''= 35114'35''
notice in the minutes column how the addition is unlike that of normal numbers which would have given you 74', when either the minutes (') or seconds ('') reach 60' then they start again and an additional degree or minute is created respectively
