Página 97 - From a window near the bottom of a house, which seemed to be on a level with the bottom of a steeple, I took the angle of elevation of the top of the steeple, equal to 40° ; then from another window, 18 feet directly above the former, the like angle was 37° 30'.
Página 97 - Wanting to know the height of an inaccessible tower; at the least distance from it, on the same horizontal plane, I took its angle of elevation equal to 58°; then going 300 feet directly from it, found the angle there to be only 32°: required its height, and my distance from it at the first station?
Página 86 - The area of a regular inscribed hexagon is a mean proportional between the areas of the inscribed and circumscribed equilateral triangles.
Página 51 - It depends on the principle, that the difference of the squares of two quantities is equal to the product of the sum and difference of the quantities.

Página 98 - Wanting to know my distance from an inaccessible object 0, on the other side of a river; and having no instrument for taking angles, but only a chain or cord for measuring distances; from each of two stations, A and B, which were taken at 500 yards asunder, I measured in a direct line from the object 0 100 yards, viz. AC and BD each equal to 100 yards ; also the diagonal AD measured 550 yards, and the diagonal BC 560. What then was the distance of the object 0 from each, station A and B ? . C AO...
Página 97 - Being on a horizontal plane, and wanting to know the height of a tower placed on the top of an inaccessible hill : I took the angle of elevation of the top of the hill 40°, and of the top of the tower 51°; then measuring in a line directly from it to the distance of 200 feet farther, I found the angle at the top of the tower to be 33° 45'.
