Mathematics[edit]

It is the smallest number which has more than one expression as a sum of consecutive square numbers:

365 = 13^2 + 14^2
365 = 10^2 + 11^2 + 12^2

There are no known prime with period 365, while at least one prime with period 1 to 364 are all known.

Timekeeping[edit]

There are 365.2424 solar days in the mean tropical year. Several solar calendars have a year containing 365 days.[1] Related to this, in Ontario, the driver's license learner's permit used to be called "365" [2][3] because it was valid for only 366 days. Financial and scientific calculations often use a 365-day calendar to simplify daily rates.

Religious meanings[edit]

Judeo-Christian[edit]

In the Jewish faith there are 365 "negative commandments".[4] Also, the Bible states that Enoch lived for 365 years before entering heaven alive (see Genesis 5:23-24).

Gnosticism[edit]

The letters of the deity Abraxas, in the Greek notation, make up the number 365. This number was subsequently viewed as signifying the levels of heaven.[5]
