### Re: Who wants to help me with some work?

Sorry, I'm at home on my laptop with no good drawing program and no scanner. Seriously though, it's not that hard to figure out what a bearing is, and that's the only thing you need to solve the problem. Please tell me this is right, I started over for neatness. http://www.vulomedia.com/images/2354...

### Re: Who wants to help me with some work?

210 is not an interior angle in any triangle, and certainly not the angle you want here. You seem to still not be understanding the meaning of "bearing". I recommend drawing a picture, first indicating the direction of north, then draw an arrow pointing in the direction indicated by a bea...

Alright I think it's 5.7 km to dock Now how do you figure out how long it will take to go 5.7 km if you are traveling at a constant of 15 km/h? FYI, unless I'm making a mistake in mental math, it's not 5.7 km to dock. b²= a²+c²- 2ac cosB b²= 6²+10²- 2*6*10Cos(210) b²= 136- 104 b= 32 square rooted b...

Ah, so you don't understand what is going on at all. The 'bearing 90 degrees' is a direction. Both the 90 degrees and 210 degrees are directions relative to "due north". Have you ever done any orienteering? 90 degrees means "90 degrees clockwise of north" -- or , due east. 210 d...

### Re: Who wants to help me with some work?

I think it's just basic trig stuff so 210 degrees is equal to -30 degrees and since we have 90 degrees and triangles always add up to 180 degrees the missing degree must be 60 degrees (- = +)

I think, am I in the right direction?
