# Foundation GCSE bearing question?

Watch
Announcements
#1
I have a diagram that shows two points A and B on a map scale 1 to 25000

It wants me to find the bearing of B from A

To do this do I just draw a line from A to B and measure the angle of the line that joins them? Or is there a further step that I am missing?

The bit I have no idea about is how to:
Work out the real distance between A and B in kilometres.

Do I just measure my line and convert it? Or do I have to use the bearings?

Any guidance here?

Do you know how many marks it is?
