# Bearings q

(7) Jamal is going to paddle between 3 points on a large lake.
Jamal will start from Point A and paddle on a bearing of 0
050 until he reaches Point B . Once at Point B , Jamal will then paddle 1.6km on a bearing of 0
142 to reach PointC . Finally Jamal will paddle directly back to Point A from PointC where he will finish.
The bearing of PointC from Point A is 0
098 . Given that Jamal can paddle at an average speed of 7.2kph, find the time it will take
him to paddle directly back to Point A from PointC . Give your answer to the nearest minute.

I got an answer of 22 minutes but am unsure. Is it correct?
