The DEGREES formula in Excel **is used to convert numerical values from radians to degrees.** It is a useful tool for anyone working with angles, particularly when the value is known in radians and needs to be converted to degrees.

The function takes one argument, which must be a numerical value representing a radian angle. The function will then convert the radian value to degree form. For example, if the argument value is 3.14159, the function will return 180.

In addition to its main purpose, you can use the formula as part of a larger formula. For example, if you need to calculate the sine of an angle in degrees, you can use the combination of the SIN function and the Degrees formula. The SIN function requires the argument to be in radians, so you can use the function to convert the angle in degrees to radians before passing it to the SIN function.

You can find the function in the Math & Trig category of the Excel functions library. It’s simple and you can use it to quickly convert an angle from radians to degrees.
