Page 127 - suffice to afford such an approximation to it as shall be of use in the ' present stage of the reader's knowledge, and help him to many just ' conceptions, on which account we shall exemplify its application in ' numbers. Now, it appears by observation, that two points, each ten...
Page 50 - In any triangle the square of any side is equal to the sum of the squares of the other two sides minus twice the product of these two sides and the cosine of their included angle.
Page 49 - ... these elements must be given, one of which must be a side, in order to solve a plane triangle. The solution of plane triangles depends upon the following FUNDAMENTAL PROPOSITIONS. 109. In a right-angled triangle, the side opposite to an acute angle is equal to the product of the hypothenuse into the sine of the angle ; and the side adjacent to an acute angle is equal to the product of the hypothenuse into the cosine of the angle. Let...
