    I started the relative motion chapter in M4 but I am having difficulty understanding the notation used to represent the direction. E.g.:

    N10°W

    What does this mean exactly?

    I would assume it meant North West 10 degrees. So anticlockwise 10 degrees from North. Maybe

    I don't think it is (according to what I have seen in my book).. Anyone else care to shed some light on this?

    From North turn 10 degrees West.

    Anticlockwise 10 degrees from North as 2710 said, or a bearing of 350 degrees.
