### Example Question #4 : Using Radians

Convert radians into degrees.

**Possible Answers:**

**Correct answer:**

Recall the definition of "radians" derived from the unit circle:

The quantity of radians given in the problem is . All that is required to convert this measure into degrees is to denote the unknown angle measure in degrees by and set up a proportion equation using the aforementioned definition relating radians to degrees:

Cross-multiply the denominators in these fractions to obtain:

or

.

Canceling like terms in these equations yields

Hence, the correct angle measure of in degrees is .
