Page 102 - The quantuplicity of A with respect to B may be estimated by examining how the multiples of A are distributed among the multiples of B, when both are arranged in ascending order of magnitude and the series of multiples continued without limit.
Page 39 - In spherical triangles, whether right angled or oblique angled, the sines of the sides are proportional to the sines of the angles opposite to them.
Page 100 - II. A greater magnitude is said to be a multiple of a less, when the greater is measured by the less, that is, ' when the greater contains the less a certain number of times exactly.' III. " Ratio is a mutual relation of two magnitudes of the same kind to one another, in respect of quantity.
Page 102 - If CP and BP be produced to E and F, it will appear from Art. 35. and 36. that the Sine of BPE muft be to that of APE, as a to b; and the Sine of CPF (BPE) to that of APF, as a to r.
Page 76 - ... Nine-points Circle. If any conic be inscribed in a given triangle and a confocal to it pass through the circumcentre , then the circle through the intersection of these two confocals touches the nine-points circle of the triangle (p. 74—75).
