Using the Excel DEGREES Function


The Excel DEGREES function is used to convert radians into degrees.


=DEGREES (angle)

Syntax Breakdown

Angle is required in the DEGREES function. This is the angle in radians that you wish to convert to degrees.

Usage Notes

The DEGREES function will convert angles, given as radians, into degrees. To convert degrees to radians, use the RADIANS function.

It is also possible to use the formula degrees x PI()/180 to find radians. For example, 15 degrees can be converted to radians as follows:

=15 * PI()/180 will return 0.261799.
