Give the compass bearing and the true bearing for each direction shown... |dw:1432992980204:dw|
theres 2 ways to indicate bearings - just by 1 angle or by stuff like N38W or S10E
that is N30W or 360-30 = 330 degrees
330 is the true bearing
Ah, making sense so far! If that's the true bearing, how do I figure out the compass?
the angle is always measured from the N line and it goes clockwise
the best way is to draw it
Yes, how do we indicate it?
280 degrees |dw:1432993046818:dw|
Is that compass bearing?
Hmm, my answer key has it as something else ... where did we go wrong o.O?
what does the answer key say?
there are various ways to give a compass bearing
that would be 330 degrees
Well, how can we possibly get it to match up with the answer key?
330 is the true
yes 330 is equivalent to N30W
I guess =/
yes it is lol believe me
unlees its done different in the US
hmm me have dyslexia, so ... ?
Do you know anyone around here who can help?
there are lots of people who can help - mathletes and champions..
I understand your method to some extent, but its just that I want to understand it like abc and not some Chinese language which is hard for me to interpret, iykwim
what haven't you understood ?
How do I invite them to check out my post and give me a hand?
I understand how we got the true bearing, but didn't quite understood how to get the compass
i'll illustrate some compass bearings
the arrow goes towards the north then moves down to the East E
gotta go right now
Ok, catch up with you later!
