How to know that it's anticlock wise?

Durge said:   7 years ago
Because in WCB method all bearing are measured north direction and in this case, it is in anticlock wise so 360 - 87 = 273.

Here, clearly given its N87°W, and North to West is 4th quadrant so the ans. is 360-87= 273.

The whole circle bearing (W.C.B) of a line is the horizontal angle measured clockwise from the North limb of the meridian.

I think north west is in 3rd quadrant. How you say that is in 4th quadrant?

How can we know that the bearing is in which quadrant?

Vyshnavi said:   9 years ago
It is in 4 quadrant, to convert it from RB to WCB = 360-Bearing of line.

360-87 = 273.
