Page vi - In any plane triangle, the sum of any two sides is to their difference, as the tangent of half the sum of the opposite angles is to the tangent of half their difference.
Page 20 - In every plane triangle, the sum of two sides is to their difference as the tangent of half the sum of the angles opposite those sides is to the tangent of half their difference.
Page iv - An Elementary Treatise on Algebra, Theoretical and Practical; with attempts to simplify some of the more difficult parts of the Science, particularly the Demonstration of the Binomial Theorem in its most general form ; the Summation of Infinite Series ; the Solution of Equations of the Higher Order, &c., for the use of Students.
Page 158 - If the zenith distance and declination be of the same name, that is, both north or both south, their sum will be the latitude ; but, if of different names, their difference will be the latitude, of the same name as the greater.
Page 163 - PS' ; the coaltitudes zs, zs', and the hour angle SPS', which measures the interval between the observations ; and the quantity sought is the colatitude ZP. Now, in the triangle PSS , we have given two sides and the included angle to find the third side ss', and one of the remaining angles, say the angle PSS'. In the triangle zss...
Page 127 - To THE TANGENT OF THE COURSE ; So IS THE MERIDIONAL DIFFERENCE OF LATITUDE, To THE DIFFERENCE OF LONGITUDE. By this theorem, the difference of longitude may be calculated, without previously rinding the departure.
Page iv - MICHAEL O'SHANNESSY, AM 1 vol. 8vo. " The volume before us forms the third of an analytical course, which commences with the * Elements of Analytical Geometry.' More elegant t&xtbooks do not exist in the English language, and we trust they will speedily be adopted in our Mathematical Seminaries. The existence of such auxiliaries will, of itself, we hope, prove an inducement to the cultivation of Analytical Science ; for, to the want of such...
Page 67 - The sum of the three sides of a spherical triangle is less than the circumference of a great circle. Let ABC be any spherical triangle ; produce the sides AB, AC, till they meet again in D. The arcs ABD, ACD, will be semicircumferenc.es, since (Prop.
