    Could anyone help me understand 4(i) of the attached question? can't really visualize it.

    how do you get the bearing from the vector? I got the vector p as (8i +8j) but how do i find the bearing? i know it's only worth 1 mark but can't figure it out

    thanks

    You can do it in your head, but seeing as you lack experience visualising it, you can start by drawing the axes, label the origin O and mark on P(8,8). Draw a line from O to P. You are looking for the angle this line makes with the vertical axis.

    Where is O? Draw a sketch of where P is - can you work out any angles?
