Well, you'll need to provide your own thoughts and attempts on the matter first.

I'm sorry for tagging you I'm just revising FM now and forgot completely how to do bearings. All I know is you the bearing is measured from north clockwise (?)

Yes, you've tried, so you should include your attempt in the first place. Anywho, you know for next time.

For the first part, P is at the origin, so since bearing is measured from the upper north line, the angle between the upper north line (where P lies on) and A is...? It's written down on the diagram for you!

For the next part, how many degrees do you need to move to go from the upper north line to end up at B? From your diagram, it's 60 + 120 + 40.

Yes.

Yes.
Thank you!!! I attempted these

I thought the first one was 150...
I thought it was the distance starting from P to Q around the Q point.

It says bearing of Q from P. So if you start at P and draw a vertical line upwards, how much do you need to rotate from that vertical line to get to Q, from P. The angle is 50 degrees.

No problem, can you do the other ones now? At least try them first.
