360 degrees

When you turn 360 degrees you’ve completed a circle and are back where you started. So if you want to describe a position that’s diametrically opposed to another, the expression you want is not “360 degrees away” but “180 degrees away.”

It looks cheesy to spell “hundreds” as “100’s”; and it isn’t really logical because “100” doesn’t mean “hundred”—it means specifically “one hundred.”
