# Convert radian to degree and add °

How can I convert a radian angle to a degree one and add ° after it?

I am using N[(Pi/4)/Degree], but the output is 45. with the point.

How can I have instead 45°?

• perhaps Pi/4/. Pi -> 180 Degree – vapor May 29 '17 at 9:45

I resolved that using

(Pi/4) * (180 Degree /Pi)


Degree is a symbol similar to Pi, it contains a value Pi / 180 and it keeps the symbolic form unless used with finite precision numbers.

All functions in Mathematica work with radians so this symbol is a convenient form of a scaling factor: 40 Degree is verbose but holds numerical value in radians.

Extracting radians is a simple as taking N[40 Degree], or using 40..

• The bad thing is it doesn't work when the given angle is numeric, e.g. when obtained using NSolve[]. – Alejandro Nava Jul 19 '20 at 18:41
