Most likely, you have never thought of the reason for this before. Though it is not a very interesting or funny subject, you are right. But it says, 'we do not see much information'


The reason why the Circle is 360 degrees is that the Sumerian and Babylonian civilizations use a number base of 60.

Why is the number base of 60? There are many reasons … First, 1/3, 1/4, 3/4, etc. in the 60s number base. exact value of the rates. Another reason is the structure of the human hand. In the human hand, each finger on the outside of the thumb consists of three nodes, and in total there are 12 nodes on one hand. It is possible to count up to 5 * 12 = 60 by closing one finger from the other hand every 12 counts. On this count, it is also easier to do the 60 's battle.

Come on … Why 360? There is a simple rationale. The Babylonians discovered the equilateral triangles. And when you align the equilateral triangles side by side, you will see that the first triangle and the last triangle come side by side and bring you to a hexagonal square

When you draw a line through the corners of the hexagon, you get the circle.

Since the Babylonians used 60 as the number base, they accepted each interior angle of the equilateral triangle as 60 degrees. And as you know, 6 equilateral triangles yield 6 * 60 = 360 degrees.
