    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
