    radians of a polygon

    The measure of each interior angle of a regular polygon with n sides is [(n-2)180/n] degrees. What is the measure of each interior angle of a regular polygon with n sides, in radians?

    How do you convert to radians?

    In any circle, there are 360^\circ or 2\pi^C.

    So 1^\circ = \frac{2\pi^C}{360} = \frac{\pi^C}{180}.


    So to convert degrees to radians, multiply by \frac{\pi^C}{180}.
