## How to Convert Degrees to Gradians

To convert a degree measurement to a gradian measurement, multiply the angle by the conversion ratio. One degree is equal to 1.111111 gradians, so use this simple formula to convert:

The angle in gradians is equal to the degrees multiplied by 1.111111.

**For example,**here's how to convert 5 degrees to gradians using the formula above.

^{g}

Degrees and gradians are both units used to measure angle. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.

## Degrees

A degree is a measure of angle equal to 1/360th of a revolution, or circle.^{[1]} The number 360 has 24 divisors, making 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.

The degree is an SI accepted unit for angle for use with the metric system. A degree is sometimes also referred to as a degree of arc, arc degree, or arcdegree. Degrees can be abbreviated as *°*, and are also sometimes abbreviated as *deg*. For example, 1 degree can be written as 1° or 1 deg.

Degrees can also be expressed using minutes and seconds as an alternative to using the decimal form. Minutes and seconds are expressed using the prime (′) and double-prime (″) characters, although a single-quote and double-quote are often used for convenience.

One minute is equal to 1/60th of a degree and one second is equal to 1/60th of a minute.

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. Learn more about how to use a protractor or download a printable protractor.

## Gradians

A gradian is equal to 1/400 of a revolution or circle, or 9/10°.
The grad, or gon, is more precisely defined as π/200, or 1.570796 × 10^{-2} radians.^{[2]}

This unit simplifies the measurements of right angles, as 90° is equal to 100 gradians.

Gradians | Degrees |
---|---|

0 grad | 0° |

100 grad | 90° |

200 grad | 180° |

300 grad | 270° |

400 grad | 360° |

A gradian is sometimes also referred to as a grad, gon, or grade. Gradians can be abbreviated as * ^{g}*, and are also sometimes abbreviated as

*gr*or

*grd*. For example, 1 gradian can be written as 1

^{g}, 1 gr, or 1 grd.
