DEGREES

Mathematical

## Summary:

Converts an angle expressed in radians to degrees.

DEGREES(Number)

## Returns:

Returns a real number which is the value of the given angle converted to degrees.

## Arguments:

Number is a real number, or a reference to the cell containing that number, that is the angle in radians to be converted to degrees.

• If Number is non-numeric, then DEGREES reports a #VALUE! error.

• 1 radian is equivalent to approximately 57.2957795130823 degrees.
• The function implements the formula $\displaystyle{ \text{DEGREES}(x)~=~x*\frac{180}{\pi} }$.

## Examples:

Formula Description Returns
=DEGREES(1) Converts 1 radian to degrees. 57.2957795130823
=DEGREES(D1) where cell D1 contains the formula =PI(). Converts π radians to degrees. 180
=DEGREES(12.5663706143592) Converts 4π radians to degrees. 720
=DEGREES(-PI()/4) Converts -π/4 radians to degrees. -45
