B is approximately, but not directly, the east of A. The bearing of A from B is \(xº\) and the bearing of B from A is \(yº\).
- Given that \(x+y=400\), find \(x\) and \(y\).
- \(x=290\), \(y=110\)
The bearing of C from D is \(pº\) and the bearing of D from C is \(qº\).
- the lower bound for \(p+q\)
- the upper bound for \(p+q\)
