Page 99 - The spherical excess of any spherical polygon is equal to the excess of the sum of its angles over two right angles taken as many times as the polygon has sides, less two.
Page 66 - The law of sines states that in any spherical triangle the sines of the sides are proportional to the sines of their opposite angles: sin a _ sin b __ sin c _ sin A sin B sin C...
Page 65 - AB'C, b < 90░ and c' < 90░, and, therefore, cos a' = cos b cos c' + sin b sin c' cos CAB'. But a' = 180░ - a, c'= 180░ - c, and CAB' = 180░ - A. Hence cos (180░ - a) or, cos a = cos b cos c + sin 6 sin c cos A, which proves the law of cosines for all cases.
Page 41 - In the same way it may be proved that a : b : : sin. A : sin. B, and these two proportions may be written a : 6 : c : : sin. A : sin. B : sin. C. THEOREM III. t8. 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. By Theorem II. we have a : b : : sin. A : sin. B.
