## Description

The degrees() method converts angle x from radians to degrees.

## Syntax

Following is the syntax for degrees() method −

```degrees(x)
```

Note − This function is not accessible directly, so we need to import math module and then we need to call this function using math static object.

## Parameters

x − This must be a numeric value.

## Return Value

This method returns degree value of an angle.

## Example

The following example shows the usage of degrees() method.

```#!/usr/bin/python3
import math

print ("degrees(3) : ",  math.degrees(3))
print ("degrees(-3) : ",  math.degrees(-3))
print ("degrees(0) : ",  math.degrees(0))
print ("degrees(math.pi) : ",  math.degrees(math.pi))
print ("degrees(math.pi/2) : ",  math.degrees(math.pi/2))
print ("degrees(math.pi/4) : ",  math.degrees(math.pi/4))
```

## Output

When we run the above program, it produces the following result −

```degrees(3) :  171.88733853924697
degrees(-3) :  -171.88733853924697
degrees(0) :  0.0
degrees(math.pi) :  180.0
degrees(math.pi/2) :  90.0
degrees(math.pi/4) :  45.0
