These are known by the name of Napier's Rules for Circular Parts ; and it has been well observed by the late Professor Woodhouse, that, in the whole compass of mathematical science, there cannot be found rules which more completely attain that which is the proper object of all rules, namely, facility and brevity of computation.

These results correspond with those obtained geometrically (Art. 68). 80.
