Hello, I'm coming here because I need help understanding a few math concepts, and this looks like a friendly community .
At the moment, I need help learning how to quickly and easily convert between radians and degrees. I am schooled over the internet, and they don't go into much detail in this section of the textbook.
The examples they give are:
Convert 300 degrees into radians.
It then shows the formula: 300 degrees = 300 degrees ((pi)radians/180 deg.)
giving the final answer of 5/3pi radians. How do I arrive at this answer?
The other example is:
Convert -3/4pi radians to degrees.
For this one the formula is not given, but they end up with -135 degrees.
Any help would be appreciated
Thanks Jhevon, that helped me. I did another one asking to convert 105 degrees into radians and I got 7pi/12. I'm pretty sure this is right.
My next problem asks me to do the opposite and convert radians into degrees.
The exact question was "Convert 7pi/5 into exact degree measure"
Using your formula, I set up the fractions:
(7pi/5)(180/pi)
Then got 1260pi/5pi
simplified to 252 degrees. Is this correct?
