## sloppycanada one year ago What is the difference between exact value and value? Example - Find the value of 11radians/6 I think it's .87

in order to find the measure of your angle in degrees, we have to solve this proportion: $\pi :180 = \left( {11/6} \right):x$ where x is therequested value. If we apply the fundamental property of proportion, we get: $x = \frac{{180 \times \frac{{11}}{6}}}{\pi } = ...$ please complete my computation

x = 105.04

4. Michele_Laino

that's right!

Okay so the value is the radians in degrees?

6. Michele_Laino

we have changed from radians to degrees, so we can say: 11/6 radians are equivalent to 105.04 degrees

So it's asking me for the percentage. Got it. I guess the decimals would be approximate value.

8. Michele_Laino

yes! we can rewrite your answer in a different way, like this: $\Large 105^\circ 2'4''$

where as usual: 60' = 1 degree 60'' = 1'
