Bearings are just another word for angles!

Where you start measuring the angle from is very important

Bearing of Town A to Town B’ means you start at A, and you’re going to B

Bearing of Town C from Town D’ means you start at D, and you’re going to C

At each start point you measure from its North.

For example

The bearing of Ship A to Ship B is 115 degrees

But the bearing of Ship A from Ship B is 295 degrees
