## Reverse Bearing Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Reverse Bearing.

RB = CB + 180

- Where RB is the Reverse Bearing (degrees)
- CB is the current bearing (degrees)

To calculate a reverse bearing, simply add 180 degrees to the current bearing.

## How to Calculate Reverse Bearing?

The following example problems outline how to calculate Reverse Bearing.

Example Problem #1:

- First, determine the current bearing (degrees).
- The current bearing (degrees) is given as: 50.

- Finally, calculate the Reverse Bearing using the equation above:

RB = CB + 180

The values given above are inserted into the equation below and the solution is calculated:

RB = 50 + 180 = 230 (degrees)

Example Problem #2:** **

For this problem, the variables required are provided below:

current bearing (degrees) = 80

Test your knowledge using the equation and check your answer with the calculator above.

RB = CB + 180** = ?**
