# Convert Degrees to Circles

## Learn How to Convert Degrees to Circles Using our Conversion Formula

Converting a degree angle measurement to a circle measurement involves multiplying your angle by the conversion ratio to find the result. A degree is equal to 0.002778 circles, so to convert simply multiply by 0.002778.

For example, 5° = (5 × 0.002778) = 0.013889cir.

A degree is an angle measurement and can be abbreviated as *°*, for example 1°.
A circle is an angle measurement and can be abbreviated as *cir*, for example 1cir.

There are 360 degrees in a revolution, or circle. 360 has 24 divisors, and is easily divided by 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 9, 10, 12, 15, 18, 20, 24, 30, 36, 40, 45, 60, 72, 90, 120 and 180. This makes it a fairly easy number to work with. There are also 360 days in the Persian calendar year, and many theorize that early astronomers used 1 degree per day. Protractors are commonly used to measure angles in degrees. They are semi-circle or full-circle devices with degree markings allowing a user to measure an angle in degrees.
