## Python math.degrees() method

math.degrees() method is a library method of math module, it is used to convert angle value from radians to degree, it accepts a number and returns the angle value in degree.

Note: math.degrees() method accepts only numbers, if we provide anything else except the number, it returns error TypeError"TypeError: a float is required".

Syntax of math.degrees() method:

math.degrees(x)

Parameter(s): x – is the number in radians to be converted into degree.

Return value: float – it returns a float value that is the angle value in degree.

Example:

Input:
x = 10.25

# function call
print(math.degrees(x))

Output:
587.2817400090938

### Python code to demonstrate example of math.degrees() method

# Python code to demonstrate example of
# math.degrees() method

# importing math module
import math

x = 0
print("math.degrees(",x,"): ", math.degrees(x))

x = 0.25
print("math.degrees(",x,"): ", math.degrees(x))

x = 10.25
print("math.degrees(",x,"): ", math.degrees(x))

x = -0.25
print("math.degrees(",x,"): ", math.degrees(x))

Output

math.degrees( 0 ):  0.0
math.degrees( 0.25 ):  14.32394487827058
math.degrees( 10.25 ):  587.2817400090938
math.degrees( -0.25 ):  -14.32394487827058

TypeError example

# Python code to demonstrate example of
# math.degrees() method with exception

# importing math module
import math

x = "10"
print("math.degrees(",x,"): ", math.degrees(x))

Output

Traceback (most recent call last):
File "/home/main.py", line 9, in <module>
print("math.degrees(",x,"): ", math.degrees(x))
TypeError: a float is required
