Congratulations on making it to the third of our Easy level Eleven Plus maths quizzes on Position. By now you should be quite familiar with the cardinal points on a compass: North, East, South and West, and also on the points which lie between them: NE, SE, SW and NW. Do you remember how many degrees lie between them?
There are 90° separating each of the cardinal points. 90° is one quarter of a rotation.
There are 45° separating the cardinal points from the points in between (e.g. between North and North-East). 45° is one eighth of a rotation.
It will help you in this quiz if you know your 9 times table. That’s because each quarter turn is 90°, so one full turn is 360° and you will know that 9 x 4 = 36. Things get a little trickier when dealing with 45° eighths of a turn. You might need a pencil and paper for some of these questions. Good luck.
