Degree of freedom (Mechanics)

How to find the Degree of freedom (Mechanics) of system?
Thank you so much.
 
Um, intuition? Just the smallest number of mutually independent variables required to completely describe any state of the system within constraints.
 
Please give me some example.
 
Thank you so much.
