A plane flies a course of 346 degrees and then turns through 30 degrees in the clockwise direction. Find its new bearing.
Since the plane from starting point covers a bearing of 346 degrees it's now going to be in the NW direction but going 30 more degrees clockwise that's already more than 360....please i'm confused

  1. 346° + 30° = 376°
    = 360° + 16°
    = 1 rotation + 16°<----- same as a direction of 16°
