Can someone please explain what bearing is exactly? I'm not totally sure how to solve problems regarding it, as I don't understand it completely.
Heres an example:
A sailing boat sets off from a point X and heads towards Y, a point 17 km north. At point Y, it changes direction and heads towards point Z, a point 12 km away on a bearing of 90 degrees. Once at Z, the crew wants to sail back to X. Calculate:
a.) The distance ZX
b.) the bearing of X from Z
