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)
