The 22.5° and 45° rule is doubling angle on the bow which is the distance run is equal to the object's distance at the second bearing. In this, case 7 tenths of the distance run equals the distance the object will be passed abeam.

The questions below are some Coast Guard exam questions which you may find on the terrestrial exam.
