rotate 25 degrees left from the 5 degrees east of north

5 degrees will get you to the north then other twenty degrees will take you to where u started from before turning right

i hope this helps

If north = 360 deg, then 5 deg east of north is 05, and 25 degrees left of 05 is 340, or 20 degrees west of north.
