Page 4 - The logarithm of any power of a number is equal to the logarithm of the number multiplied by the exponent of the power.

Page 7 - This process, like its converse (Art. 23), is based upon the supposition that the differences of logarithms are proportional to the differences of their corresponding numbers.

Page 4 - The logarithm of any POWER of a number is equal to the product of the logarithm of the number by the exponent of the power. For let m be any number, and take the equation (Art. 9) M=a*, then, raising both sides to the wth power, we have Mm = (a")m = a"" . Therefore, log (M m) = xm = (log M) X »»12.

Page 74 - Spherical Triangle the cosine of any side is equal to the product of the cosines of the other two sides, plus the product of the sines of those sides into the cosine of their included angle ; that is, (1) cos a = cos b...

Page 43 - In every plane triangle, the sum of two sides is to their difference as the tangent of half the sum of the angles opposite those sides is to the tangent of half their difference.

Page 39 - ... be at the head of the column, take the degrees at the top of the table, and the minutes on the left ; but if the name be at the foot of the column, take the degrees at the bottom, and the minutes on the right.

Page 46 - The cosine of half of any angle of a plane triangle is equal to the square root of half the sum of the three sides, into half the sum less the side opposite the angle, divided by the rectangle of the two adjacent sides.
