Radian and degree are two units used to measure angles.

## Answer: 1 radian = 57.295779513082320876 degrees

See detailed explanation.

**Explanation**:

A radian is the SI unit to measure angles often denoted by 'rad'. The magnitude of one complete revolution in radians is the length of the entire circumference divided by the radius that is 360º / 2π.

Whereas degree is the accepted unit to measure angles. It is the measurement of an angle in one full rotation that is 360º.

The relation between radian and degree is 1º = π / 180 radians.
