Hello,

does anyone have any experience of this app? DS seems not to have done much work on bearings. He can work out where he has to get to if, say, told to travel anti clockwise for 135 degrees , starting from, say, NE. But some of the app questions are, for eg:

Connor is standing at Point Q. He walks the following route and finishes at point P.

6m West, 4m North, 15m East, 4m South. What is the shortest distance between points P & Q?

Is this an especially hard 11+ question? Or should we be pulling our socks up a bit? :roll:

Thanks for replying, Herman.

Yes, it is 9m. There were others which were 'open-topped' rectangles. I've never come across this style of question before; and DS clearly hadn't! Is it a fairly typical 11+ question? I've not seen it in Bond, S&S, or the first 3 GL papers (I haven't looked at the last 5 ...)
