Books Books 1 - 10 of 34 on The Circumference of every circle is supposed to be divided into 360 equal parts,.... The Circumference of every circle is supposed to be divided into 360 equal parts, called Degrees ; and each degree into 60 Minutes, each minute into 60 Seconds, and so on. Hence a semicircle contains 180 degrees, and a quadrant 90 degrees. 58. The Measure... A Course of Mathematics: For the Use of Academies as Well as Private Tuition - Page 377
