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.javapublic 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:

```30.060.0
```
