Click the tabs for extension tasks…

B is approximately, but not directly, the east of A. The bearing of A from B is \(xº\) and the bearing of B from A is \(yº\).

- Given that \(x+y=400\), find \(x\) and \(y\).

- \(x=290\), \(y=110\)

The bearing of C from D is \(pº\) and the bearing of D from C is \(qº\).

- the lower bound for \(p+q\)
- the upper bound for \(p+q\)

- 180º
- 540º
