- A circle is divided into 360 degrees for the purpose of angular measurement. 360° = 2 π rad is also called a round angle. This choice of unit allows round angle to be divided into equal sectors measured in integer degrees rather than fractional degrees. Many angles commonly appearing in planimetrics have integer number of degrees.
- 360 is the sum of two twin primes (179 + 181).
