In NumPy, the `.degrees()` function converts angles expressed in radians into degrees.

## Syntax

``````numpy.degrees(x, out=None, where=True)
``````
• `x`: The number or array of numbers in radians that must be converted.
• `out`: An optional parameter specifying where the result is stored.
• `where`: An optional parameter specifying a condition to filter which elements to convert.

## Example 1

```# Importing the 'numpy' library as 'np'import numpy as np
# Convert a single number from radians to degreesradNum = 4result = np.degrees(radNum)print(result)
```

Below is the output generated by the above code snippet:

```229.1831180523293
```

## Example 2

```# Importing the 'numpy' library as 'np'import numpy as np
# Convert an array of numbers from radians to degreesradArray = [np.pi/2, np.pi/6, 5, 8]result = np.degrees(radArray)print(result)
```

Note: `np.pi` represents the mathematical constant approximately equal to `3.141592653589793`.

The output generated by the above code snippet is as follows:

```[ 90.          30.         286.47889757 458.3662361 ]
```
