    \[\pi\text{ radians }=180^{\circ}\]

    For example convert 3pi/4 rad to degrees

    \[x\text{ rad }\times({180^{\circ}\over\pi\text{ rad }})=y^{\circ}\]

    this works because by the formula I first typed we have that\[({180^{\circ}\over\pi\text{ rad}})=1\]so multiplying a number by that changes nothing to gr from degrees to radians we go the other way and use\[({\pi\text{ rad }\over180^{\circ}})=1\]
