**Degrees and radians**

There are angular units used other than degrees. In this course, we will largely use radians as the unit of an angle. There is a connection between radians and degrees

The relationship between degrees and radians will become clearer in the next section, 'The unit circle'.

**Example 1**

Convert to 180°, 90° and 45° into radians.

Since 360 ° = 2𝛑 radians, then

**Example 2**

How many radians is *20°*?

First we find how many radians is one degree

Now we can multiply it by 20

**Example 3**

How many degrees is *2,1* radians?

First we find how many degrees is one radian

Now we can multiply it by *2,1*
