# 7.1 Angles  (Page 4/29)

 Page 4 / 29

Because radian    measure is the ratio of two lengths, it is a unitless measure. For example, in [link] , suppose the radius were 2 inches and the distance along the arc were also 2 inches. When we calculate the radian measure of the angle, the “inches” cancel, and we have a result without units. Therefore, it is not necessary to write the label “radians” after a radian measure, and if we see an angle that is not labeled with “degrees” or the degree symbol, we can assume that it is a radian measure.

Considering the most basic case, the unit circle (a circle with radius 1), we know that 1 rotation equals 360 degrees, $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}360°.$ We can also track one rotation around a circle by finding the circumference, $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}C=2\pi r,$ and for the unit circle $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}C=2\pi .\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ These two different ways to rotate around a circle give us a way to convert from degrees to radians.

## Identifying special angles measured in radians

In addition to knowing the measurements in degrees and radians of a quarter revolution, a half revolution, and a full revolution, there are other frequently encountered angles in one revolution of a circle with which we should be familiar. It is common to encounter multiples of 30, 45, 60, and 90 degrees. These values are shown in [link] . Memorizing these angles will be very useful as we study the properties associated with angles.

Now, we can list the corresponding radian values for the common measures of a circle corresponding to those listed in [link] , which are shown in [link] . Be sure you can verify each of these measures.

Find the radian measure of one-third of a full rotation.

For any circle, the arc length along such a rotation would be one-third of the circumference. We know that

So,

$\begin{array}{ccc}\hfill s& =& \frac{1}{3}\left(2\pi r\right)\hfill \\ & =\hfill & \frac{2\pi r}{3}\hfill \end{array}$

The radian measure would be the arc length divided by the radius.

Find the radian measure of three-fourths of a full rotation.

$\frac{3\pi }{2}$

## Converting between radians and degrees

Because degrees and radians both measure angles, we need to be able to convert between them. We can easily do so using a proportion where $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\theta \text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ is the measure of the angle in degrees and $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}{\theta }_{R}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ is the measure of the angle in radians.

$\frac{\theta }{180}=\frac{{\theta }_{{}^{R}}}{\pi }$

This proportion shows that the measure of angle $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\theta \text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ in degrees divided by 180 equals the measure of angle $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\theta \text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ in radians divided by $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\pi .\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ Or, phrased another way, degrees is to 180 as radians is to $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}\pi .$

$\frac{\text{Degrees}}{180}=\frac{\text{Radians}}{\pi }$

## Converting between radians and degrees

To convert between degrees and radians, use the proportion

$\frac{\theta }{180}=\frac{{\theta }_{R}}{\pi }$

Convert each radian measure to degrees.

1. $\frac{\pi }{6}$
2. 3

Because we are given radians and we want degrees, we should set up a proportion and solve it.

1. We use the proportion, substituting the given information.
$\begin{array}{ccc}\hfill \frac{\theta }{180}& =& \frac{{\theta }_{R}}{\pi }\hfill \\ \hfill \frac{\theta }{180}& =& \frac{\frac{\pi }{6}}{\pi }\hfill \\ \hfill \theta & =& \frac{180}{6}\hfill \\ \hfill \theta & =& 30°\hfill \end{array}$
2. We use the proportion, substituting the given information.
$\begin{array}{ccc}\hfill \frac{\theta }{180}& =& \frac{{\theta }_{{}^{R}}}{\pi }\hfill \\ \hfill \frac{\theta }{180}& =& \frac{3}{\pi }\hfill \\ \hfill \theta & =& \frac{3\left(180\right)}{\pi }\hfill \\ \hfill \theta & \approx & 172°\hfill \end{array}$

Convert $\text{\hspace{0.17em}}-\frac{3\pi }{4}\text{\hspace{0.17em}}$ radians to degrees.

$-135°$

what is the formula for calculating algebraic
I think the formula for calculating algebraic is the statement of the equality of two expression stimulate by a set of addition, multiplication, soustraction, division, raising to a power and extraction of Root. U believe by having those in the equation you will be in measure to calculate it
Miranda
state and prove Cayley hamilton therom
hello
Propessor
hi
Miranda
the Cayley hamilton Theorem state if A is a square matrix and if f(x) is its characterics polynomial then f(x)=0 in another ways evey square matrix is a root of its chatacteristics polynomial.

What is algebra
algebra is a branch of the mathematics to calculate expressions follow.
Miranda
Miranda Drice would you mind teaching me mathematics? I think you are really good at math. I'm not good at it. In fact I hate it. 😅😅😅
Jeffrey
lolll who told you I'm good at it
Miranda
something seems to wispher me to my ear that u are good at it. lol
Jeffrey
lolllll if you say so
Miranda
but seriously, Im really bad at math. And I hate it. But you see, I downloaded this app two months ago hoping to master it.
Jeffrey
which grade are you in though
Miranda
oh woww I understand
Miranda
Jeffrey
Jeffrey
Miranda
how come you finished in college and you don't like math though
Miranda
gotta practice, holmie
Steve
if you never use it you won't be able to appreciate it
Steve
I don't know why. But Im trying to like it.
Jeffrey
yes steve. you're right
Jeffrey
so you better

okay no problem since we gather here and get to know each other
SORIE
hi im stupid at math and just wanna join here
Yaona
lol nahhh none of us here are stupid it's just that we have Fast, Medium, and slow learner bro but we all going to work things out together
SORIE
it's 12
what is the function of sine with respect of cosine , graphically
tangent bruh
Steve
cosx.cos2x.cos4x.cos8x
sinx sin2x is linearly dependent
what is a reciprocal
The reciprocal of a number is 1 divided by a number. eg the reciprocal of 10 is 1/10 which is 0.1
Shemmy
Reciprocal is a pair of numbers that, when multiplied together, equal to 1. Example; the reciprocal of 3 is ⅓, because 3 multiplied by ⅓ is equal to 1
