If you are lost and you are scared and all you have is a compass well you are safe because a compass is easy to use.

  1. grab the compass out of where ever it is.
  2. place it flat on your hand.
  3. and it will point to the north hemisphere.
  4. The compass will find the magnetism and lead you the way.
  5. from there you will find safety.
  6. But if you are in the equator your compass will not work.
