# Year 10 question on Bearings

1. 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!

Ed

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

Kind Regards,
