A circle is divided into 360 degrees for the purpose of angular measurement, which is a convenient standard since, 360 being highly composite, it allows a circle to be divided into equal segments with each segment measured in integer degrees rather than fractional degrees.

360 is the sum of a twin prime (179 + 181).
