    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

    Okay so the value is the radians in degrees?

    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.

    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'

    So the value of 11radians/6 is 105.04degrees. Assuming I round, 100 degrees?
