**equation**to , or subtract it from M.P , and we shall have , M.P ± N.P = M.P ± M.Q ; or ( MN ) ... Page 128

Taking the first

Taking the first

**equation**from the second , and observing that the triangles APC , APB , which are both right angled at P , give AC - PC - AP2 , and AB2 - PB2 = AP2 ; we shall have AP2 + AP2 = 2AQ2 — 2PQ2 . Therefore , by taking the ... Page 211

The arc or angle A has for its supplement 180 ° -A : hence generally , we have sin A sin ( 180 ° -A . ) The same property might also be expressed by the

The arc or angle A has for its supplement 180 ° -A : hence generally , we have sin A sin ( 180 ° -A . ) The same property might also be expressed by the

**equation**sin ( 90 ° + B ) = sin ( 90 ° -B ) , B being the arc DM or its equal DM ' ... Page 217

The formulas of the preceding Article , combined with each other and with the

The formulas of the preceding Article , combined with each other and with the

**equation**sin 2A + cos 2A = R2 , furnish some others worthy of attention . First we have R2 + tang2 AR2 + R1 R2 ( sin2 A + cos2 A ) . cos 2A cos A cos2 A R2 ... Page 236

But from the

But from the

**equation**c = 10 - b , we have c - 10 -- b : hence if we substitute for b its value , we shall have a — b = a + c - 10 , which agrees with the enunciation . When we wish the arithmetical complement of a logarithm , we may ...### What people are saying - Write a review
