Is pi in radians 180degrees?

think 2piR so 1 pi equals half or 180

Wait wait wait... Pies are better when they are baked at 230 degrees.

Rad > Degrees
#Rad * 180/pi
Degrees > Rads
#Degrees * pi/180
180degrees * pi/180 = pi
piRads * 180/pi = 180 degrees

My idea is better. just remember that there is 2pir in a circle which is 360 degrees. so 1 pi is 180degrees. this way there is only one equation to remember

But using the pi/180 conversion factor allows you to convert any rad measurement to its corresponding degree measurement and viceversa.
And to be honest, your 'idea' is basically that 1 pi is 180, which is the same as the conversion factor I posted. So since it is the same, I don't see how it could be better. That's silly

its different. everyone knows 2pir=360 wheras your equasion is 1pi=180 which has no root in common knowledge... 2pir=360 is easier to remember for me. for me it is easier to think how much of a circle each radian is than to just use the equation. or at least, it is pleasing to think in terms of "parts of a circle" rather than to just use nongeometric equations. i like thinking of pi as half a circle. or at least i like knowing where 1pi=180 comes from.
