The Art of Surveying and Mea suring of Land. First of the Chain. Beam Ecause Mr Gunter's Chain is most in use among Surveyors for measuring of Lines, I shall chiefly insist on that Measure, it being the best in use for Lands. This Chain contains in Length 4 Pole or 66 Feet, and is divided into 100 Links, each Link is therefore in Length 72-Inches: If you would turn any Number of Chains into Feet, you must multiply them by 65, as 100 Chains multiplied by 66, makes 6600 Feet; but if you have Links to your Chains to be turned into Feet and parts of Feet, you must set down the Chains and Links, as if they were one whole Nuinber, and after having multiplyed that Number by 66, cut from the product the two last Figures to the Right Hand, which will be the Hundredth Parts of a Foot, and those on the Left hand the Feet required. F Examples Example. Let it be required to know how many Feet there are in 15 Chains 25 Links. I let down thus the Multiplicand 15,25 The Number ct Feet in i Chain, 66 Multiplyer. 9150 9150 Product in Feet. 1006150 The Product is 1006 : This is so plain, it needs no other Example. But now on the other hand, if one thoufand and fix Feet and an halt was given you to reduce into Chains and Links; you muft divide 1000.50 by 66, the Quotient will be 15, 25, viz. 15 Chains 25 Links. In like manner, if it had been asked, how many Perches had been contained in 25 Chains 25 Links, you most divide 15, 25 by 25, the Links in cne Perch and the Quotient Answers the Question. 25.115,25(61.
