Throug the equivalence pi=180º and de direct proportionality of arcs and angles. See examples

#### Explanation:

If we have 45º degrees convert to radians is easy

$\frac{\pi}{x} = \frac{180}{45}$. Then $x = \frac{45 \pi}{180} = \frac{\pi}{4}$. So 45º=pi/4 rad

By the other hand, if we have $\frac{\pi}{3}$ rads, to convert to degrees, we use the same equivalence

$\frac{\pi}{\frac{\pi}{3}} = \frac{180}{y}$. Trasposing terms y=(180pi)/(3pi)=180/3=60º
