Question: How to solve sin of x degree equal to sin of x radians within defined interval

Hello everybody and thankyou in advance to answer my question.

I am trying to answer this question:

“Find the solutions for x so that the sine of x degrees be equal to the sine of x radians in the interval [0, Pi].” I wrote this formula to solve it but without success:

solve(sin(x*degree)=sin(x),x) assuming 0<=x<=Pi

I expected a solution like:

{x=0, x=(180*Pi)/(180+Pi)} but not,

I somehow get a numeric solution for the first positive real number within the referred interval with this:

fsolve(sin(x*Pi/180) = sin(x), x, 0 .. Pi);

But if I change the interval for example [0, 3*Pi] I still only get one answer, not the four I spect.
