 Question 144023: How do I figure out what bearings should be used. The points on my triangle are A(1,2), B(3,8)and C(7,4) Angle measurements are A 52.85 degrees, B 63.76 degrees and C 63.39 degrees. I am going from point(0,0) to B(3,8). I need to know the exact bearing used to travel from (0,0) to point B. Also, how do I figure out the range of bearings so I avoid the triangle?Answer by stanbon(60772)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!How do I figure out what bearings should be used. The points on my triangle are A(1,2), B(3,8)and C(7,4) Angle measurements are A 52.85 degrees, B 63.76 degrees and C 63.39 degrees. I am going from point(0,0) to B(3,8). I need to know the exact bearing used to travel from (0,0) to point B. Also, how do I figure out the range of bearings so I avoid the triangle? ----------------------------- The bearing from (0,0) to (3,8) is tan^-1(8/3) = 69.444 degrees ---------------------------- What do you mean by the "range of bearings so I avoid the triangle?" ======================== Cheers, Stan H.
