# degrees()
Converts a radian measurement to its corresponding value in degrees.
## Examples

```python
def setup():
rad = py5.PI/4
deg = py5.degrees(rad)
# prints "0.7854 radians is 45.0 degrees"
py5.println(round(rad, 5), 'radians is', round(deg, 5), 'degrees')
```

## Description
Converts a radian measurement to its corresponding value in degrees. Radians and degrees are two ways of measuring the same thing. There are 360 degrees in a circle and `2*PI` radians in a circle. For example, `90° = PI/2 = 1.5707964`. All trigonometric functions in py5 require their parameters to be specified in radians.
This function makes a call to the numpy `degrees()` function.
## Signatures
```python
degrees(
radians: Union[float, npt.ArrayLike] # radian value to convert to degrees
) -> Union[float, npt.NDArray]
```
