Page 96 - In a 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 63 - 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.
