 T O P I C    R E V I E W effort Posted - 04/18/2012 : 11:04:25 Please show me how to find the bearing of these angles:1. 90....my answer is North2. 315....ny answer is South EastFind the bearing of the following points:1. (4,7)...my answer is N2945'I used tan....so tan^-1(7/4)=60.255so 90-60.255 = N2945'Eis this right?2. (-6,0)....I ondt know how to do this but I think it is 1803. (0,-10).....I don't know how to do this but I think it is 270*****if #2 and #3 are right....is it because at those points, it is just the degree of that quadrant? 1   L A T E S T    R E P L I E S    (Newest First) the_hill1962 Posted - 04/18/2012 : 15:27:53 You always take bearings by facing North. The angle is stated as a clockwise direction from the North.So "90" is East, not North.
