Learn how to convert **degrees to radians** or **radians to degrees** by following a step-by-step guide.

## Step by step guide to solve angles and angle measure problems

- To convert
**degrees to radians**, use this formula: \(\color{blue}{Radians = Degrees \ × \frac{π}{180}}\) - To convert
**radians to degrees**, use this formula: \(\color{blue}{Degrees =Radians ×\frac{180}{π}}\)

### Example 1:

Convert \(120\) degrees to radians.

**Solution:**

Use this formula: Radians \(=\) Degrees \(×\frac{π}{180}\)

Radians \(=120×\frac{π}{180}=\frac{120π}{180}=\frac{2π}{3}\)

### Example 2:

Convert \(\frac{\pi}{3}\) to degrees.

**Solution**:

Use this formula: Degrees \(=\) Radians \(×\frac{180}{π}\)

Radians \(=\frac{π}{3}×\frac{180}{π}=\frac{180π}{3π}=60\)

### Example 3:

Convert \(150\) degrees to radians.

**Solution**:

Use this formula: Radians \(=\) Degrees \(×\frac{π}{180}\)

Radians \(=150×\frac{π}{180}=\frac{150π}{180}=\frac{5π}{6}\)

### Example 4:

Convert \(\frac{2π}{3}\) to degrees.

**Solution**:

Use this formula: Degrees \(=\) Radians \(×\frac{ 180}{ π }\)

Radians \(=\frac{2π}{3}×\frac{180}{π}=\frac{360π}{3π}=120\)
