So I have a minor in mathematics yet I am confusing myself over the following - if I am given an angle, theta, in degrees and need to find a second angle, gamma, in degrees, and the relationship is tan(theta) = C*tan(gamma), where C is some constant, can I plug in theta in degrees and get gamma in degrees? Or do I need to convert theta to radians, find gamma in radians, then convert gamma to degrees again? If I do it with degrees I get 26.32, but if I do it the radians way i get 27.69.
