# ​Bearings

​Bearings is a part of the VCE Further Maths topic Geometry and Measurement. Compass bearings use the four directions on a compass in order to find the direction of one object from another. An example is N20°E. True bearings use the number of degrees measured clockwise from north an object is. An Example is 120°T. Bearings are useful when finding the direction of travel as well as the distance travelled.
