Is this a trick question? Converting

Convert 5 from radians to degrees.

Well 5 isn't even in radians is it? So how do I convert that? 5 * 180/pi?

I'm confused.

As there are 180/? degrees in one radian, there are 5 * 180/? degrees in 5 radians.

"pie" refers to a confection that I eat too much of...

"pi" refers to the Greek letter.
