Two sides AC and BC, and an angle A, opposite to one of

them BC.

5. The angle B, sin BC : sin AC : : sin A : sin B. The affection of B opposite to the is doubtful; unless it can be determined by this rule, other given that according as AC+BC is greater or less than 180°,

side AC A+B is also greater or less than 180°. 6. The included R: cos AC: :tan A : cot ACD, less or greater than 90°, angle ACB. as AC and A are of the same or of different affection.

tan BC: tan AC :: cos ACD: cos BCD greater than

90°, if one or all of the 3 terms ACD, AC, BC, are

greater than 90°; otherwise less than 900, ACD + BCD=ACB, doubtful. If ACD+BCD ex

ceed 180°, take their difference; if BCD is greater

than ACD, take their sum, for the angle ACB. 7. The third R : cos A : : tan AC : tan AD, less or greater than 90°, side AB. as A and AC are of the same or of different affection.

cos AC : cos BC :: cos AD: cos BD, greater than 90°,

if one or all of the 3 terms AD, AC, BC, are greater than 90°; otherwise less than 90°. AD+BD=AB, doubtful. If AD+BD exceed 180°, take their difference; if BD is greater than AD, take their sum for AB.
