# Convert Angle from Radians to Degrees  To convert an angle from radians to degrees multiply the angle by over (tau) radians. For example, to convert the angle radians to degrees multiply the conversion factor and simplify the fraction.

Note: This website uses the constant (tau) instead of (pi) as the default circle constant. The substitution can be used to translate between the two constants.

## Examples

### Example 1  This examples shows how to convert the angle radians to degrees.

#### Steps

1. Set up the conversion.

2. Multiply by the conversion factor.

3. Simplify the expression. In this case, the circle constant and the radian unit cancels.

The angle of radians is equal to .
