I typically would include the actual formulas you are using. I also tend to use the angular equations rather than trying to use the linear ones. For example: \(\displaystyle v = r \omega\), so \(\displaystyle \omega = \frac{v}{r}\) (And at this step you would do your unit conversions.)

Then you simply have \(\displaystyle \theta = \omega t\).
