Example Question #1801 : High School Math

If an angle is 2.43 radians, what is the equivalent angle in degrees? 

Possible Answers:

Correct answer:

Explanation:

To answer this question, it is important to remember the relationship:

From here, we can set up the following formula: 

Multiplying across, we see that the units of radians cancel out and we are left with units in degrees.

Example Question #41 : Understanding Radians And Conversions

Bob manages a pizza store. He bought a new machine that tracks how big his employees are cutting the pizza slices. The machine measures the average angle size of each slice of each pizza. Unfortunately, the angle is given as 0.7854 radians which Bob does not understand. Help Bob by converting the radian angle into degrees. In degrees, what is the size of the angle for an average pizza slice.

Possible Answers:

Correct answer:

Explanation:

To convert we use a common conversion amount. It may be easiest to remember the full circle example. In degrees, a full circle is  around. In terms of radians, a full circle is . So to get our answer
