Angles and Angle Measure

Angles and Angle Measure

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

Exercises

Convert each degree measure into radians and convert each radian measure into degrees.
