How to Convert Gradians to Circles
To convert a measurement in gradians to a measurement in circles, divide the angle by the following conversion ratio: 400 gradians/circle.
Since one circle is equal to 400 gradians, you can use this simple formula to convert:
The angle in circles is equal to the angle in gradians divided by 400.
Gradians and circles are both units used to measure angle. Keep reading to learn more about each unit of measure.
What is a Gradian?
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.
This unit simplifies the measurements of right angles, as 90° is equal to 100 gradians.
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 1g, 1 gr, or 1 grd.
In the expressions of units, the slash, or solidus (/), is used to express a change in one or more units relative to a change in one or more other units.

What is a Circle?
A circle is the equivalent of 1 revolution around a circle, or 360°.
A circle is sometimes also referred to as a revolution. Circles can be abbreviated as cir; for example, 1 circle can be written as 1 cir.
A circle is more commonly used to describe a round, symmetrical shape with no corners or edges than it is to describe plane angle. The shape is described by its radius and circumference.
