Chapter 6 - The Circular Functions and Their Graphs - 6.1 Radian Measures - 6.1 Exercises: 52

Answer

$\color{blue}{\approx 0.6812 \text{ radians}}$

Work Step by Step

RECALL: (1) $1^0=60'$ (2) To convert an angle in degrees to radians, multiply $\dfrac{\pi}{180^o}$ then simplify. Convert $37'$ to degrees to obtain: $37' = 37' \cdot \dfrac{1^o}{60'} = \dfrac{37}{60}^o$ Thus, the given measurement is equivalent to $122\frac{37}{60}^o$ Convert to radians using the formula in (2) above to obtain: $\require{cancel} 122\frac{37}{60}^o \\= 122\frac{37}{60}^o \cdot \dfrac{\pi}{180^o} \\=0.6812037037 \\\color{blue}{\approx 0.6812 \text{ radians}}$
