Your first one is correct, however the 2nd is wrong.
I believe #2 is 32.5° W.

No your overthinking it How big is a basic quadrangle? Hopefully that helps

7.5 minutes so the answer to number 2 would be 30 degrees 7 minutes 30 seconds west EDIT: sorry for vagueness in my hint, but I meant that since a USGS quadrangle is 7.5 minutes by 7.5 minutes you could use that to determine the neat line of the neighboring quad
