## How to convert radians to fractions of pi

The formula in cell D3 converts the radian decimal value to fractions of pi.

Formula in cell D3:

### Explaining the formula in cell D3

#### Step 1 - Divide radian by pi

The first operation is the division between the radian number and pi.

C3/PI()

becomes

6.28318530717959/PI()

The PI function returns the number pi (Â¶).

Function syntax: PI()

6.28318530717959/PI()

becomes

6.28318530717959/3.14159265358979

and returns 2

#### Step 2 - Calculate fractions

The TEXT function converts a value to text in a specific number format.

Function syntax: TEXT(value, format_text)

TEXT(C3/PI(),"?/?")

becomes

TEXT(2,"?/?")

and returns "2/1".

#### Step 3 - Display the PI character

The CHAR function converts aÂ number to the corresponding ANSI character determined by your computers character set.

Function syntax: CHAR(text)

The CHAR function inserts the pi symbol using ANSI code 182.

CHAR(182)

returns Â¶

#### Step 4 - Join values

Lastly, the ampersands concatenate the values.

TEXT(C3/PI(),"?/?")&"*"&CHAR(182)

becomes

"2/1"&"*"&Â¶

and returns "2/1*Â¶".
