Σελίδα 52 - The angle in a semicircle is a right angle ; the angle in a segment greater than a semicircle is less than a right angle ; and the angle in a segment less than a semicircle is greater than a right angle.
Σελίδα 18 - DISTINGUISH the given number into periods of two figures each, by putting a point over the place of units, another over the place of hundreds, and so on, which points shew the number of figures the root will consist of. 2. " FIND the greatest square number in the first, or left hand period...
Σελίδα 120 - C' (89) (90) (91) (92) (93) 112. In any plane triangle, the sum of any two sides is to their difference as the tangent of half the sum of the opposite angles is to the tangent of half their difference.
Σελίδα 31 - DIVISION BY LOGARITHMS. RULE. From the logarithm of the dividend subtract the logarithm of the divisor, and the number answering to the remainder will be the quotient required.
Σελίδα 87 - On the line of lines make the lateral distance 10, a transverse distance between 8 on one leg, and 6 on the other leg. On the line of sines make the lateral distance 90, a transverse distance from 45 to 45 ; or from 40 to 50 ; or from 30 to 60 ; or from the sine of any degree to their complement.
Σελίδα 7 - RULE. Divide as in whole numbers, and from the right hand of the quotient point off as many places for decimals as the decimal places in the dividend exceed those in the divisor.
Σελίδα 82 - ... longer than the intermediate adjacent ones, these are whole degrees ; the shorter ones, or those of the third order, are 30 minutes. From the centre, to 60 degrees, the line of sines is divided like the line of tangents ; from 60 to 70, it is divided only to every degree ; from 70 to 80, to every two degrees ; from 80 to 90, the division must be estimated by the eye.
