# Rotate function rotates by radians

Clueid shared this question 1 year ago

Hello,

When applying a rotation to some object, GeoGebra consider the angles in radians, (e. g: rotate(B, 90) why is that? Although I have set the angle unit to degrees in Preferences > Advanced > Angle unit > Degrees. the angle without "°" is in radians.

the angle with "°" is in degrees.

(e. g: rotate(B, 90) is in radians, independent of preferences

(e. g: rotate(B, 90°) is in degree independent of preferences

"Preferences > Advanced > Angle unit" determines how the angular dimension is to be displayed (independent how the angular dimension was entered/defined) 2

the angle without "°" is in radians.

the angle with "°" is in degrees.
