VECTORS: Bearings.  

A vector is a line representing a distance between two points e.g. A to B.

A bearing is the distance calculated from two other vector lines drawn graphically on a scale of x horizontal and y vertical coordinates. The resulting distance C to A can also be found through the use of simple matrices.

The top row representing the x distances and the bottom row the y distances.
