There are many historical system. You can read the history of degrees and seconds and minutes both in time and direction: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Numeral_system#Sixty The Sumerians established the 60-numeral system. Sixty is evenly divisible by: 2,3 4, 5, 6, 10,12,15,20,30 (10 numbers). whereas 100 is only divisible by 2,5,10,20,25 and 50 (6 numbers). This is important if you are splitting thing up. And why the day is 24 hours?! time,like space, is relative, wich mean no one can be accertain that a certain event occured in a certain time, to over come this delima we created hours and minutes. however the babylions,iraqis, are those who created that system.
