from a point R,300M north of P, a man walks eastwards to a place Q which is 600m from P. find the bearing of P from Q correct to the
nearest degree

• maths -

tan Ø = 300/600 = 1/2
Ø = 26.565°

so the bearing is 243° or direction of S 27° W

(at times these two terms are interchanged in their meaning, check with your texbook how they define bearing)
