Página 6 - The Circumference of every circle is supposed to be divided into 360 equal parts, called Degrees ; and each degree into 60 Minutes, each minute into 60 Seconds, and so on.
Página 24 - In this case the" hypothenuse may be found by the square root without finding the angles ; according to the following PROPOSITION. IN EVERY RIGHT ANGLED TRIANGLE, THE SUM OF THE SQUARES OF THE TWO LEGS IS EQUAL TO THE SQUARE OF THE HYPOTHENUSE. In the above EXAMPLE, the square of AB 78.7 is 6193.69, the square of BC 89 is 7921 ; these added make 14114,69 the square root of which is nearest 119.
