if theta = 3, find the value of theta in degrees correct to the nearest tenth of a degree

Expert Answers

An illustration of the letter 'A' in a speech bubbles

Given angle `theta=3` radians, find its value in degrees.

The conversion factor is:

1 radian=`180/pi` degrees

Multiply `theta` by the conversion factor:

`theta=3(180)/pi=171.88` degrees

Therefore 3 radians is equal to 171.88 degrees.
