Course to steer word problem

Sean Barnes Sep 09, 2017 11:01AM EDT

On the top of page 5, (4.4) Lesson 2 Lecture, it states that we need to work from the top down and SUBTRACT East, but as shown below the solution ADDS East. Is this mistake or am I missing something?

"b. When solving this question you must work the problem down from the top. So look at the arrow pointing down it indicates that you must add West and subtract East."

T = 115° +W
V = 7°W -E (115° + 7°W = 122°)
M = 122°
D =3°E -W
C = 119° +E (122° - 3°E = 119°)
Answer: 119°

No error here. When working this problem from the top to the bottom you add westerly and subtract easterly. Be sure t watch the video found in your online classroom. It does a great job of explaining the process. Give us a call Monday 9-5 EST with any additional questions (609) 303-0664.
