asked on # Trigonometry problemo!

Ok, so I am a beginner to trigonometry, and how do you convert a decimal to a degree? I dunno if i worded it dorrect, but a website said tan 0.5 is 26.6. I still duno if thsts correct, but if it is, someone explain in good detail on how they got 26.6 degrees? I know how to invert, tan,sin,and cos, coordinates,cortesian coordinates, perpendicular lines, right angles, reciprocals (correct me if im wrong, fraction interchanging?) So can someone simply explain how they got 26.6? Thanks.
