solve for LO with guesses 0 and 16 and get 14.6060 - which ought to be 15.0100.

Luckily, this is "only" a display bug

For HMS calculations, Casio shines, since it knows sexagesimal.
Sharp calculator is even better, with less keystrokes:

7 [DMS] 36 - [DMS] 40 * 2 =﻿ 6°16' // work-related time, less commute allowances
+ 1 [DMS] 30 ﻿= 7°46' ﻿ ﻿ ﻿ ﻿ ﻿ ﻿ ﻿ ﻿ ﻿ ﻿ ﻿ ﻿ ﻿ ﻿ ﻿ ﻿ ﻿ ﻿ ﻿ // + non-work time, commute (1 way) + lunch break
+ 7 [DMS] 15 = 15°01' ﻿ ﻿ ﻿ ﻿ ﻿ ﻿ ﻿ ﻿ ﻿ ﻿ ﻿ ﻿ ﻿ ﻿ ﻿ ﻿ ﻿ // leaving office at 3:01 pm
