**Geometry**

for similar figures" lengths are proportional to scale ratio areas are proportional to the square of scale ration volumes are proportional to cube of scale ratio 448/28 = 16 sqrt 16 = 4 so four times all the length measurements

You do not walk on a bearing but on a heading. Math texts are not written by navigators. Bearing is the direction from you to a object like a lighthouse. North distance = 50 cos 25 = 45.3 East distance = 50 sin 25 + 200 = 221 distance = sqrt(45.3^3+221^2)
