Answer:

#128.57...#

Explanation:

Remember that #pi# radians are #180°#, so you can build the following proportion, if #r# is the angle in radians and #d# is the angle in degree:

#r:pi = d:180#

From here, isolate #d#:

#d = r*180/pi#

So, plugging #r=(5pi)/7#, we have

#d = (5cancel(pi))/7*180/cancel(pi) = \frac{5\cdot 180}{7} = \frac{900}{7} = 128.57...#

Answer:

It is #900^{\circ}/7#

Explanation:

From #alpha^{\circ}/alpha=360^{\circ}/(2*pi)# we get
#alpha^{\circ}=180^{\circ}/pi*5/7*pi#
canceling the #pi# we get
#alpha^{\circ}=900^{\circ}/7#
