Hello:

I don't have a question on how to solve a specific problem, rather vectors in general.

In my book, they often give vector direction by stating "due north", "due east", "due west", "due south". However, I can't figure out which of these directions correspond with what degree. For example, is "due north" = 90 degrees?

Please help.

Thanks

South = 270 Degress
East = 0 Degrees
