# Degree Symbol

**Degree symbol is °**. Sometimes students or those who deal with mathematics, physics or various kinds of calculations may need to type a **degree sign**,
but we do not have one directly on our keyboard. *Degree symbol* can be used in case if we're dealing with angles,
or when we need to operate with temperature and use Celsius degree. It is also a common *coordinate degree sign*.
Actually, there are a few ways to make a **degree symbol**.
You can either copy paste, or use the degree code in your document. See some examples below:

Great page, thank you!

Thank you for your page. A small degree of editing is required for this statement:

Obtuse angle is greater than 90° and less than 90°. (>90 degrees and

obviously one of the best

Excellent site!

THANKS SO MUCH!

Awesome website! Thanks for this!

Thank god this website was made!

I love this webpage, is even better than the semicolon page!

Degree symbol on GNU/Linux (X desktop):

• AltGr-Shift-0

• Compose ‘o’ ‘o’

Compose is usually Shift-AltGr. The order in which those keys are pressed is important.

I love this!! You are all so great :')

I have been here more than once, thank you.

Thank you degreesymbol.net, you were exactly what I needed

Awesome

In the obtuse angle one 90° should be 180° :)

thicky boy shut up seriously this is more useful

this is awesome

cannot be more useful too good out of 100000000 I give this site 100000000

Amazing I was making a presentation which had climates and this worked thanks a lot!

this is great

Thank you! This website is a small wonder

Very useful.

Thank you :)!

THIS IS EPIC

Please guide me how to use this

Yeah buddy get to copy from here

This post contains next to nil on information. All it contains is HOW to obtain the degrees symbol, without explaining the WHY of the degrees symbol. For those, like me, who were ENDLESSLY DISAPPOINTED with the lack of information in the website, here is the history, finally printed, of the degrees symbol.

The first known recorded modern use of the degree symbol in mathematics is from 1657 where the usage seems to show that the symbol is a small raised zero, to match the prime symbol notation of sexagesimal subdivisions of degree such as minute ( ′ ), second ( ″ ), and third ( ‴ ), which originate as small raised Roman numerals.

How easy that paragraph was to read! How simple, five minutes, to research the fine history of the degrees symbol! But no!! Crass, lazy, shoddy work is all society is good for in this modern day and age. This website is living proof of that: for they are too lazy to give the degrees symbol the respect it deserves.

This is a great tool! It helped me out quite a bit with my final lab report!

^ very much.

incredibly useful website, thank you for making it!

I need a masterlist of all the alt and some numbers symbols asap

whoever made this website is a godsend

Turn 360° and walk away

It didn't work for me so i just copied it off the website >:(

best website on the internet for sure

I won't lie, this is definitely me when I'm doing mathematics

Great success!

thanks

many many Thanks BrO...

To do this on a Chromebook/Chrome Cook/ChromeOS:

1. Press and hold "ctrl" + "shift" + "u"

2. Let go

3. Type "b0"

4. Click "enter"

Notes:

All this without quotations.

Also all unicode characters can be typed this way on a Chromebook! Just replace the "b0" with: https://unicode-table.com/en/

You can also find codes by Googling!

Thanks, this information helped me a lot.

Well... it is kinda impressive to dedicate a website to the degree symbol! Amazing!

the most unneccessary, yet helpful site, cheers

How do you calculate the number of miles in a degree of latitude and in a degree of longitude?

°°°°°°°°°°°° Thanks for the website, without this I would never find it °°°°°°°°°°°°

Thanks for this it will help to my exam and thank you very much

nice
