Trigonometric Functions, Radian Measure

∏ <-- will be using this for pi

Using exact values, convert to radians ( hint use fraction of ∏)

90° = 90°*∏/180° = 1∏/2

^^would it be right to also call it 2∏ radians?

Determine the angle at the centre of the circle, radius 6cm, for each arc length.Express each angle in radians and then in degrees.

3cm

a = rθ

3 = 6θ

1/2 = θ

1/2*180°/∏

=28.6°

^One of my friends got a totally different answer, and she got

θ = 2 rad

2*180/∏ = 114.59

^Ive no idea how she got that :S
