    How to measure them
    If you want the bearing of A from B

    You draw a line from B to A

    You also draw a line straight up the page from B (this is your North line)

    Then you measure the angle between the lines

    You will see that there are 2 angles (usually one big and one small) you want the angle to the RIGHT of your North line

    Do you know the points of the compass?

    Imagine a compass at B ... draw a line going West

    Imagine a compass at A ... draw a line going South West

    Where your lines meet is C
