Example 2:

Consider a database table called Sample with the following records:

Datax
Data 10
Data 21
Data 32
Data 43
Data 54

The query given below can be used to convert the records (expressed in radians) of column x into degrees.

SELECT *, DEGREES(x) AS DEGREES_Value FROM Sample;

This will produce the result as shown below:
