    Hello all,

    Just been looking over my test paper going over the questions I need work on. I don't usually have a problem with bearings, but I seem to be getting nowhere with this one.

    Appreciate any help - I know I must be overlooking something obvious!!


    Thanks!

    Have you made any progress? Post all your working / thoughts.

    If you haven't done anything then the first to do is to realise that the triangle is isosceles so you can find the other two angles in the triangle.

    That's great - seemed to have overlooked that! Angle BAC = BCA = 65º.

    So solution = 65 + 70 = 135 º

    Thanks for your help!!!

    Kind Regards,
