The .toDegrees() method converts an angle, measured in radians, to an approximately equivalent angle, measured in degrees.

## Syntax

Math.toDegrees(angle)

The data type of the angle parameter and return value of the .toDegrees() method is a double.

Some edge cases for the .toDegrees() method include the following:

• If the argument is NaN, this method will return NaN.
• If the argument is zero, this method will return zero with the same sign as the argument.
• If the argument is infinity, this method will return infinity with the same sign as the argument.

## Example

The following example demonstrates the .toDegrees() method being applied to two variables:

// TestDegree.java
public class TestDegrees {
public static void main(String args[]) {
double x = 0.5235987756;
System.out.println(Math.toDegrees(x));
double y = 1.0471975512;
System.out.println(Math.toDegrees(y));
}
}

This results in the following output:

30.0
60.0
