Homework Statement


In example 1 on this webpage;
http://www.cliffsnotes.com/study_guide/De-Moivres-Theorem.topicArticleId-11658,articleId-11634.html [Broken]
(√3 + i)^7

You'll see that the angle is inserted in degrees, and then in the working out the degree angles are multiplied by the power of 7, to give 210°

If the angle had been inserted in radians i.e. ∏/6 and multiplied by the power of 7 also, to give 7∏/6 in the working out (instead of 210°), would this be equally valid?

π radian corresponds to 180°. 210° is equivalent to (210/180) π = 7π/6.
