# StrictMath toDegrees() Method in Java

The java.lang.StrictMath.toDegrees() method of StrictMath class in Java is used to accept an angle measured in radians as a parameter and returns its approximately equivalent angle measured in degrees. So basically it converts radians to degrees. This conversion is generally inexact.

Syntax:

`public static double toDegrees(double rad)`

Parameters: This function accepts a single parameter rad which refers to an angle in radians which is to be converted to its equivalent degrees.

Return Values:This method returns the measurement of the angle passed as a parameter in degrees.

Examples:

```Input : 2.0
Output : 114.59155902616465

Input : 0.007022
Output : 0.4023309637408641
```

Below programs illustrate the java.lang.StrictMath.toDegrees() method in Java :

Program 1:

 `// Java Program to illustrate StrictMath.toDegrees() ` `// function  ` ` `  `import` `java.io.*; ` `import` `java.lang.*; ` ` `  `class` `GFG { ` `    ``public` `static` `void` `main(String[] args) ` `    ``{ ` ` `  `        ``double` `rad = ``3.0009871008``; ` `        ``double` `deg = StrictMath.toDegrees(rad); ` `        ``System.out.println(``"Value in degrees of "` `+ ` `                       ``rad + ``" radians is "` `+ deg); ` `    ``} ` `} `

Output:

```Value in degrees of 3.0009871008 radians is 171.943895249041
```

Program 2:

 `// Java Program to illustrate StrictMath.toDegrees() ` `//  function  ` ` `  `import` `java.io.*; ` `import` `java.lang.*; ` ` `  `class` `GFG { ` `    ``public` `static` `void` `main(String[] args) ` `    ``{ ` ` `  `        ``double` `rad = ``1.0``; ` `        ``double` `deg = StrictMath.toDegrees(rad); ` `        ``System.out.println(``"Value in degrees of "` `+ ` `                       ``rad + ``" radians is "` `+ deg); ` `    ``} ` `} `

Output:

```Value in degrees of 1.0 radians is 57.29577951308232
```
