### Bearings

Bearings are angles which we use to navigate with a compass.

Bearings are angles that are measured clockwise from North. We can use them to navigate with a **compass**.

A bearing is always given as 3 figures. Therefore, an angle of $60\degree$ would be written as $060\degree$.

How should we write the bearing for $95\degree$ ?

All bearings are measured from which cardinal point?

The angles around a point add up to...

Bearings can also appear in descriptive questions that require the sine rule or the cosine rule. If you're unfamiliar with this topic, see our trigonometry content.
