    Unless there is some convention that i am unaware of, i don't think "50 degrees west" makes much sense. West is west, there aren't different degrees of west. Are you sure it wasn't something like "50 degrees west from north"?

    Yeah I figured it out. It was talking about the dip for the west direction not the strike. I was mixing two different things up. Thats why it was making any sense... Thank you
