### What are Degree and Gon

Definition of Degree

A degree, denoted by the symbol °, is a measure of plane angle representing 1/360 of a full rotation or circle. The degree is widely used in the fields of geometry, navigation, and many practical applications. Its adoption in various systems and the common understanding of its partition of a circle makes it a fundamental unit of angular measurement.

Definition of Gon

A gon, also known as a grad or grade, is a unit of measurement for angles, where one gon is defined as 1/400 of a full circle. By this definition, a right angle is 100 gons. The gon is particularly useful in fields such as civil engineering, surveying, and navigation, where angular measurements are frequently required.
