from the question it is clear that length of PQ = QR. Therefore, angle QPR and QRP will both be 45 degrees.

Now for the right answer to the above question:

1. Option A is correct. bearing of R from P = 045°
2. Option B is incorrect. This is rather the bearing of P from R.
3. C is incorrect.
4. D is not the correct answer.

QUICK TIPS…

• A problem like this requires a sketch in order to avoid mistakes.
• Bearing is usually measured in a clockwise direction from the north.
• Please also observe the difference between bearing of P from R, and bearing of R from P.
