# StrictMath toDegrees() Method in Java

• Last Updated : 23 Jul, 2018

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
```
