The Area may be calculated according to Prob. XII. by measuring Diagonals and Perpendiculars ; or more accurately according to Prob. IX. Rule 4. As the Bearing and Distance of the Lines from the Station to the several Angles are known, two sides and their contained Angle are given in each of the Triangles into which the Plot is divided ; the Area may, therefore, be readily calculated by the Rule above referred to. Note. As in the operation, the Logarithm of Radius is to be subtracted from the Sum of the other Logarithms, it may done by rejecting the Left hand figure, without the trouble of putting down the Cyphers and subtracting.

At the first Station A draw a Meridian Line and lay off the Bearings to the respective Angles ; draw the stationary Line AB, according to the Bearing and Distance ; at B draw a Meridian Line parallel to the other, and lay off the Bearings to the Angles, as taken from this Station ; from each station draw Lines through the Degree which shows the Bearing of each Angle, as marked by the Protractor or Line of Chords, and the Points where those Lines intersect each other will be the Angles of the Field. Connect those angular Points together by Lines, and those Lines will represent the several Sides of the Field. CASE VIII. survey an inaccessible Field.

CASE IX. survey a Field where the boundary Lines are very irregular, without noticing with the Compass every small Bend. Begin near one Corner of the Field, as at A, Plate IV. Fig. 68. and measure to the next large Corner, as B, in a straight Line; noticing also the Bearing of this Line. From the Line take Offsets to the several Bends, at Right Angles from the Line ; noticing in the FIELD Book at what part of the Line they are taken, as A 1, H2, I3, B 4.
