The original motivation for choosing 360 as the number of degrees in a circle is unknown. At least we know that it came to be a long, long time ago—as in 4 or 5 thousand years ago with the Sumerians, or perhaps other even more ancient groups.
One theory states that it is related to the fact that 360 is approximately the number of days in a year.
Another theory is that the Sumerians subdivided the circle using the angle of an equilateral triangle as the basic unit and further subdivided the latter into 60 parts following their sexagesimal numeric system.
In this post I will show how the number 360 relates to natural numbers.
360 x 123456789 = 44,444,444,040
44,444,444 / 40 = 1,111,111.1
360 / 1,111,111.1 = 0.000324 (324 is a perfect square number)
360 / 324 = 1.11111111
360 x 987654321 = 355,555,555,560
3/ 55 = 0.0545454 (The sine of an angle of 54 degrees is half the golden ratio.)
0,0545454 / 60 = 9,090909090 (90 degrees in a right angle)
360 / 54 = 6.66666666
360 / 9,87654321 = 36.449999999

355,555,555,560 / 44,444,444,040 = 8
360 + 350 + 340 + 330 + 320 etc = 6660

40,000 ( polar circumference of Earth in km) / 360 = 111.1111111
360 / 111.1111111 = 3.24000000324
3 x 24 = 72
72 / 324 = 0.22222222
72 x 360 = 25920 ( Number of years in The Precession of the Equinoxes)
360 / 1,6180339887 (The golden ratio) = 222.4922
49 / 22 = 2.2272727272

120 / 360 = 0,333333333
2978 (orbital speed of Earth in m/s) / 360 = 8,2722222
8 x 27 = 216
216 x 2 = 432 (radius of the Sun in miles / 1000)
432 / 360 = 1.2
216 / 2 = 108 (The diameter of the sun is about 108 times that of the diameter of Earth.)
360 / 108 = 3.333333
360 x 3 = 1080 ( radius of the Moon in miles)
The mass of the sun is 333,000 bigger than Earths mass
360 / 333,000 = 0,00108108108 (The diameter of the sun is about 108 times that of the diameter of Earth.)
360 / 384,400( distance to moon) = 9.365,24 x 10^{-4} There are exactly 365.24 days in a year
2,713,406 ( circumference of the Sun in miles ) / 360 = 7537.23888888
75 / 37 = 2.027027027027

The only single numbers in the Fibonacci sequence is 1,2,3,5 and 8
360 x 1.2358 = 444.888
180 x 1,2358 = 222.444
Pi = 3.1415926
If we multiply the first 6 decimal numbers we get 360
1 x 4 x 1 x 5 x 9 x 2 x 6 = 360
