Hence it follows, that the difference of the log. tangents of the half complements of the latitudes, is to the difference of longitude a ship makes...
Σελίδα 252 - If the logarithm is not found exa£Uy in the tables, and more than four figures are required, fubtraft the logarithm found in the table from the given one, and divide the remainder by the difference between the logarithm found and the next greater ; the quotient joined to the four figures already found, gives the number anfwering to the logarithm. EXAMPLES. To find the number anfwering to the logarithm 2.7342957.
