Have you ever thought about why a circle has 360 degrees? Well there was a group of people called the Babylonians. While we use 10 nowadays I bet your wondering what they use. Well The Babylonians used a number system with the base number of 60. The number system is called the sexagesimal system. The Babylonians learned that the earth rotates about 1 degree per day. Their calendar had 360 days, which is pretty close to 365 (our calendar). The reason they chose 360 was so they could track the time of year. They were 5.25 days off, but they were close.
A full circle is 360°. It is broken up into 60 parts. One part would be 1/60.

That makes it a lot easier to work with.
I hope you learned a bit from this. Comment if you want.
