# Finding the Angle of Bearing

## What is the angle of bearing of CD in degrees?

Can you determine the angle of bearing of CD in degrees based on the provided data?

## Angle of Bearing of CD

The angle of bearing of CD is approximately 338.92 degrees.

To determine the angle of bearing of CD, we need to use the given distances and bearings. The bearing of CD is given as N 21°05' W.

First, let's convert the bearing to decimal degrees. To convert from degrees, minutes, and seconds to decimal degrees, we use the following formula:

**Decimal Degrees = Degrees + (Minutes/60) + (Seconds/3600)**

For the bearing N 21°05' W, the decimal degrees can be calculated as:

**Decimal Degrees = 21 + (5/60) + (0/3600) = 21.0833 degrees**

Now, we can calculate the angle of bearing of CD by subtracting the bearing of CD from 360 degrees (since the angle is measured clockwise from the north direction):

**Angle of Bearing of CD = 360 - 21.0833 = 338.9167 degrees**

Therefore, the angle of bearing of CD is approximately 338.92 degrees.
