Page 1 - A spherical triangle is a portion of the surface of a sphere, bounded by three arcs of great circles.
Page 69 - The areas of two triangles which have an angle of the one equal to an angle of the other are to each other as the products of the sides including the equal angles. D c A' D' Hyp. In triangles ABC and A'B'C', ZA = ZA'. To prove AABC = ABxAC. A A'B'C' A'B'xA'C' Proof. Draw the altitudes BD and B'D'.
Page 69 - THEOREM. The surface of a spherical triangle is measured by the excess of the sum of its three angles above two right angles, multiplied by the tri-rectangular triangle.
Page 8 - I. The sine of the middle part is equal to the product of the tangents of the adjacent parts.
Page 8 - II. The sine of the middle part is equal to the product of the cosines of the opposite parts.
Page 30 - Any angle is greater than the difference between 180° and the sum of the other two angles.
Page 63 - The cosine of half the sum of two sides of a spherical triangle is to the cosine of half their difference as the cotangent of half the included angle is to the tangent of half the sum of the other two angles. The sine of half the sum of two sides of a spherical...
Page 62 - The sine of half the sum of two sides of a spherical triangle is to the sine of half their difference as the cotangent of half the included angle is to the tangent of half the difference of the other two angles.
Page 71 - ... and the sum of the angles in all the triangles is evidently the same as that of all the angles of the polygon ; hence, the surface of the polygon is equal to the sum of all its angles, diminished by twice as many right angles as it has sides less two, into the tri-rectangular triangle.
