Melissa's Dive

Geometry Level 3

The fanciest dive that was ever dove
Was done by Melissa of Coconut Grove.
She bounced on the board and flew into the air
With a twist of her head and a twirl of her hair.
She did thirty-four jackknives, backflipped and spun,
Quadrupled gainered, and reached for the sun,
And then somersaulted nine times and a quarter
And looked down and saw that the pool had no water.
-Shel Silverstein

Assuming that a jackknife is 180 degrees, and all the other diving steps (backflip, spin, gainer, somersault) are 360 degrees, how many degrees did Melissa turn?
