So I get that [25 degrees North of East] is a line that is 25 degrees above the east axis.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

But what about [E25S]

Is that [25 degrees South of East]

or [25 degrees East of South]

My teacher says that [E25S] is [25 degrees East of South]

but based on that notation I think it is [25 degrees South of East]

Please help me determine this because he has deducted marks for it. Any credible internet sources would be helpful.
