Degrees

Definition:

A degree (°) is unit of angle measure representing 1/360 of a 360° rotation. Degrees are a way to measure angles according to how wide the angle is open.

Example: How many degrees make up 3/5 of a circle?

Solution:

Keeping in mind that a circle has 360 degrees total, we can multiply 360 by 3/5 to find the degree measure:

360 * 3/5 = 216°
