A SHORT and Easy Course of t&e Mathematical Sciences h^s* long been ^considered as a desideratum for the use of Students in the different schools of education: one that should hold a middle rank between the more voluminous ^nd bulky collections of this kind, and the mi^e abstract % and brief common-place forms, of principles and. memo* fandums. «^ For Ung experience, in all Seminaries of Learningji ha$ j> shown, that such a work was very much wanted, and would >l prove a gre^t and general benefit ; as, for want of it, re- 4iourse has always been oblig^ to be bad to a number of other books, by different authors; selecting a part from one and a part from another, as seemed most suitable to thef purpose in hand, and rejecting the other parts— a practice which occasioned much expence and trouble, in procuring and using such a number of odd volumes, of various forms and modes of composition; besides wanting the benefit of uniformity and referencei which are found in a regular series of composition. To remove these inconveniences, the Author of the pre- sent work has been induced, from time to time, to compose various parts of this Course of Mathematics; which the experience of many years' use in the Academy has enabled him to adapt and improve to the most useful form' and quantity, for the benefit of instruction there. And, to render ti^t benefit more eminent and lasting, the Master General of the Ordnance has been pleased to give it its present form, Ky ordering it to be enlarged and printed, for the use of the . Roayl Military Academy. A 2 As IT PREFACE. As this work has been composed expressly with the inten- tion of adapting it to the purposes of academical education, it is not designed to hold out the expectation of an entire new ipass of inventions and discoveries: but rather to collect ^d arrange the most useful known principles of mathe- matics, disposed in a convenient practical form, demonstrated in a plain and concis'e way, and illustrated with suitable ex- amples; rejecting whatever seemed to be matters of mere curiosity, and retaining only such parts and branches, as have a direct tendency and application to some useful purpose in life or profession. It is however expected that much that is new will be found in many parts of these volumes; as well in the matter, as in the arrangement and manner of demonstration! throughout the whole work, especially in the geometry, which is" ren- dered much more easy and simple than heretofore ; and in the conic-sections, which are here treated in a manner at once new, easy, and natural ; so much so indeed, that all the propositions and their demonstrations, in the ellipsis, are the very same, word for word, as those in the hyperbola, using only, in a very few places, the word sum, for the word differ^ ence: also in many of the mechanical and philosophical parts which follow, in the second volume. In the conic sections^ too, it may be observed, that the first theorem of each sec- tion only is proved from the cone itself, and all the rest of the theorems are deduced from the fint, or from each other, in a very plain and simple manner. Besides renewing most of the rules, and introducing every- where new examples, this edition is much enlarged in several places; particularly by extending the tables of squares and cubes, square roots and cube roots, to 1000 numbers, which will be found of great use in many calculations ; also by the table of logarithms at the end of the first volume, and of lo- garithms, sines, a(nd tangents, at the end of the second Yolume ; by the add;ition of Cardan's rules for resolving cubic equations I PREFACE. V equations; with tables and rules for annuities; and many other improvements in different parts of the work* Though the several parts of this course of mathecnatics are ranged in the order naturally required by such elements^ yet students may omit any of the particulars that may be thought the least necessary to their several purposes; or they may study and learn various parts in a di&rent order from their present arrangement in the book, at the discretion of the tutor. So, for instance, all the notes at the foot of the pages may be omitted, as well as many of the rules ; particularly the 1st or Common Rule for the Cube Root, p. 85, may well be omitted, being more tedious than useful. Also the chaf^ ters on Surds and Infinite Series, in the Algebra : or these might be learned after Simple Equations. Also Compound Interest and Annuities at the end of the Algebra. Also any part of the Geometry, in vol. 1 ; any ojf the branches in vol. 2, at the discretion of the preceptor. And, in any of the parts, he may omit some of the examples, or he may give more than are printed in the book ; or he may Tery pro- fitably vary or change them, by altering^the Aumbera oc» casionally.— -As to the quantity of writing ; the author would recommend, that the student copy out into his fair book no more than the chief rules which he is directed to learn off by rote, with the. work of pne example only to' each rule, set down at full length : omitting to set down the work of all thff other examples, how many soever he may be directed to work out upon his slate or waste paper. — In short, a great deal of the business, as to the quantity and order and maimeri must depend on the jtt4goient of the discreet and {Hmdeiit #utor or director* CONTENTS OF VOLUME I.

UANTITT, or Magnitude, is any thing that mil admit of increase or decrease ; or that is capable of any sort of calculation or mensuration : such as numbers, lines, spacey time, motion, weight. 2, Mathematics is the science which treats of all kincls of quantity whatever, that can be numbered or measured.-— Th^ part which treats of numbering is called Arithmetic; and that which concerns measuring, or figured extension, is called Geametfy^-^These two, which are conversant about multitude and magnitude, being the foundation of all the other parts, are called Pure or Abstract Mathematics; be- cause they investigate and demonstrate the properties of ab- stract numbers ^d magnitudes of all sorts. And when th^se two parts are applied to particular or practical subjects, they .eonsdtute the branches or parts called Mixed Mathematics.--^ Mathematics is also distinguished into Speculative and Prvnv Jica/c viz. Speculative, when it is concerned in discovering properties and relations ; and Practical, when applied to practice and real use concerning physical objects* \, Vo^L B 3.to 2 GEigERAL PRINCIPLES. 3. In Mathematics are several general terms orprinci^es; such as. Definitions, Axioms, Propositions, Theorems, rro- blems. Lemmas, Corollaries, Scholiums, &c. 4. A Definition is the explication of any term or word in a science ; showing the sense and meaning in which the term is employed. — Every Definition ought to be clear, and ex- pressed in words that are common and perfectly well under- stood. 5. A Proposition is something proposed to be proved, or something required to be done ; and is accordingly either si Theorem or a Problem* 6. A Theorem is a demonstrative proposition; in which some property is asserted, and the truth of it required to be proved. Thus, when it is said that. The sum of the three angles of any triangle is equal to two right angles, this is a Theorem, the truth of which is demonstrated by Geometry. —A set or collection of such Theorems constitutes a Theory. 7. A Problem is a proposition or a question requiring something to be done ; either to investigate some truth or property, or to perform some operation. As, to find out the quantity or sum of all the three angles of any^triangle, or to di'aw one line perpendicular to another. A Limited Pro» hlem is that which has but one answer or solution.- An Un^ limited Problem is that which has innumerable answers. And a Determinate Problem is that which has a certain num- ber of answers. S. Solution of a Problem, is the resolution or answer given to it. A Numerical or Numeral Solutiony is the answer given in numbers. A Geometrical Solution^ is the answer given by the principles of Geometry. And a Mechanical Solution^ is one which is gained by trials. 9. A Lemma is a preparatory proposition, laid down in order to shorten the demonstration of the main proposition which follows it. 10. A Corollary y or Consectary^ is a consequence draW|x immediately from some proposition or other premises. 11. A Scholium is a remark or observation made by some foregoing proposition or premises. • 12. An Axiom, or Maxim, is a self-evident proposition ; requiring no formal demonstration to prove the truth of it ; but is received and assented to as soon as mentioned. Such as, The whole of any thing is greater than a part of it ; or. The whole is equal to all its parts taken together: or. Two quantities that are each of them equal to a third quantity, are equal to each other. / 13. A GENERAL PRINCIPLES. S Id* A Pastulatey or Petition, is sometliing required to be donC) which is so easy and evident that no person will hesi- tate to allow it. 14. An Hypothesis is a -supposition assumed to be truei in order to argue from^ or to found upon it the reasoning and demonstration of some proposition. ^ 15. Demonstration is the collecting the several arguments and proofs, and laying them together in proper order, to «}iow the truth of the proposition under consideration* 16. A Direct, Positive, or Ajffirmative Demonstration, h that which concludes with the direct and certain proof of the proposition in hand. — This kind of Demonstration is most satisfactory to the mind ; for which reason it is called some- times an Ostensive Demonstration. 17. An Indirect, or Negative Demonstration, is that which shows a proposition to be true, by proving that some absur- dity would necessarily follow if the proposition advanced were false. Thrs is also sometimes called Reductio ad Absurdum; becausie it shows the absurdity and falsehood of all supposi- tions contrary to that contained in the proposition. 18. Method is the art of disposing a train of arguments in a proper order, to investigate either the truth or falsity of a proposition, or to demonstrate it to others when it has been found out. — This is either Analytical or Synthetical. 19. Analysis, or the Analytic Method, is the 2rt or mode of finding out the truth of a proposition, by first supposing the thing to be done, and then reasoning back, step by step, till we arrive at some known truth. — ^Thi$ is also called the Method of InventioHy or Resolution; and is that which is com- monly used in Algebra. 20. Synthesis, or the Synthetic Method, is the searching out truth, by first laying down some simple and easy princi- jdes, and pursuing the consequences flowing from them till we arrive at the condusion. — This is also called the Method rfCon^sjfion; and is^ the reverse of the Analytic method, as £bis proceeds from known principles to an unknown conclu- sion ; while the other goes in a retrograde order, from the thing sought, considered as if it were true^ to some knpwn principle or fact. And therefore, when any truth has been foupd out by the Analytic method, it may be demonstrated by a process in the contrary order, by Synthesis. B 2 ARITH- t * 3 ARITHMETIC. jljLRITHMETIC is the art or science of numbering ; be- ing that branch of Mathematics which treats of the nature and properties of numbers, — ^When it treats of whole num- bers, it is called Vulgar^ or Common Arithmetic; but when of broken numbers, or parts of numbers, it is called Frmctions. Unity J or an Unitj is that by which every thing is called one ; being the beginning of number ; as, one man, one baU^ one gun. Number is either simply one, or a compound of several units % as, one man, three men, ten men. An Integer^ or Whoh Number^ is some certain precise quantity ofunits ; as, one, three, ten.— These are so called as distinguished from Fractions^ which are broken numbers, or parts of numbers ; as, one-half, two-thirds, or three-fourths. NOTATION AND NUMERATION. Notation, or Numeration, teaches to denote or ex- press any proposed number, either by word$ or characters ; or to read and write down any sum or number. The numbers in Arithmetic are expressed by the following ten digits, or Arabic numeral figures, which were intitxlucea into Europe by the Moors, about eight or nine hundred ^ years since ; viz. 1 one, 2 two, 3 three, 4 four, 5 five, 6 six, 7 seven, 8 eight, 9 nine, cipher, or nothing. These cha* racters or figures were formerly all called by the general name of C^hers ; whence it came to pass that the art of Arithmetic was then often called Cohering. Abo the first nine are called Significant Figures^ as distinguished from the cipher, which is of itself quite insignificant. Besides this value of those figures, they have also another, which depends on the place they stand m when joined toge- ther; as in the following table : Units NOTATION AND NU»ffiRATION. S 9 Si ^ ' o CO « »3 r^* a J rS S*3 ,2 JS « &€. 98765432 1 98 7 65 4 3 2 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 9 B 7 6 .5 4 9 8 7 6 5 9 8 7 6 9 8 7 9 - 8 9 fl Here, any figure in the first place, reckoning from right to left, denotes pnly its own simple ralue ; but that in the second place, denotes ten times its simple value ; and that in the third place, a hundred times its simple value ; and so on : the value of any figure, in each successive place, being always ten times its former value. Thus, in the number 1796, the 6 in the first place denotes only six units, or simply six ; 9 in the second place signifies nine tens, or ninety ; 7 in the third place, seven hundred ; and the 1 in the fourth place, one thousand : so that the whole number is read thus, one thousand seven hundred and ninety^six. As to the cipher, 0, though it signify nothing of itself, yet being joined on the right-hand side to other figures, it in- creases their value in the same ten>fbld proportion : thus, 5 signifies only five ; but 50 denotes 5 tens, or fifty ; and 500 is five hundred ; and so on. For the more easily reading of large numbers, they are divided into periods and half-periods, each half-period con« sisting of three figures ; the name of the first period being units; of the second, millions; of the third, millions of millions, or bi*millipns, contracted to billions : of the fourth, millions of millions of millions, or tri-millions, contracted to trillions, and so on. Also the first part of any period is so many units of it, and the latter part so many thousand?. The 6 ARITHMETIC. The following Table contains a summarj ef the whole docUine. Periods* QuadrilL; Trillions; Billions; Millions; Units. th. un. th« un, th. un. th. un. th. un. 123,456; '78»,098; 765,432; 101,234; 567,890. Numeration is the reading of any number in words that is proposed or set down in figures ; which will be easily done by help of the following rule, deduced from the fore- going tablets and observations — ^viz. Divide the figures in the proposed number, as in the sum- mary above, into periods and half-periods ; then begin at the left-hand side» and r^ad the figures with the names set to them in the two foregoing tables. EXAMPLES. Express in WQr4s the fbllo\ving numbers ; viz^ 34 96 180 304 6134 5028 15080 72003 109026 483500 2500639 7523000 13405670 47050023 309025600 4723507689 274856390000 6578600307024 Notation is the setting dgwn ii| figures any number pro- posed in words ; which is done by setting down the figures instead of the words or names belonging to them in the sum- mary above ; supplying the vacant places with ciphers where any words do not occur. EXAMPLES. Set down iii figures the following numbers ; Fifty-seven. Two hundred eighty- six. Nine thousand two hundred and ten. Twenty-seven thousand five hundred and ninety-four. Six hundred and forty thousand, four hundred and eighty-one. Three millions, two hi^ndred sixty thousand, one hundred and six. Four NOTATION AND NUMERATrON. Four hundred and eight millions, two hundred and fifty-five thousand) one hundred and ninety-two. Twenty-seven thousand and eight millions, ninety-six thou- sand two hundred and four. Two hundred thousand and five hundred and fifty millions) one hundred and ten thousand, and sixteen. Twenty-one billions, eight hundred and ten millions^ sixty- four thousand) one hundred and fifty. Of the Roman Notation. The Romans, like several other nations, expressed their numbers by certain letters of the alphabet. The Romans used only seven numeral letters, being the seven following capitals: viz. I for one; Y for Jive; X for ten; lu for fifty; C for an hundred; D for five hundred; ^ for a thousand* The other numbers they expressed by various repetitions and combinations of these, aft:er the following manner : 1 = 2 = S = 4 = 5 = 6 7 8 9 10 50 100 500 1000 2000 5000 6000 10000 50000 60000 100000 1000000 2000000 &c. I II III mi or IV V VI VII VIII IX X L C Dor ID M or CIO MM As often as any character is re- peated, so many times is its value repeated. A less character before a greater diminishes its value. A less character after a greater increases its value. V or IDD VI X or CCIOO Lj>r IDOD LX C^or CCCI0D3 Mor CCCCIODDD MM &c. For every 3 annexed, this be- comes 10 times as many. For every C and O, placed one at each end, it becomes 10 times as much. A bar over any number in- creases it 1000 fold. ExPLA- $ ARITHMETia • • • Explanation of certain Characters* There are various characters or marks used in Arithmetic, amd Algebra, to denote several of the operations and proposiF- tions ; the chief of which are as follow : + signifies/Zi/x, or addition. — - •«■ minus, or subtraction. X or . - multiplication. -5- - - division. : :: : - proportion! = - - equality. \/ - - square ropt. -J/ • - cube root, &c. ^ - - diffl between two numbers when it is not known which k the greater. Thus, 5 + Sj denotes that 3 is to be added to 5. .6 <— 2, denotes that 2 is to be taken from 6. '7 X 8, or 7 . S, denotes that 7 is to be multiplied by S. 5 -r 4, denotes that 8 is to be divided by 4. 2 : 3 : : 4 : 6, shows that 2 is to 3 as 4 is to 6. 6 + 4 = 10, shows that the sum of 6 and 4 is equal to 10. V^S, or 3i, denotes the square root of the number 3. ^5, or 5% denotes the cube root of the number 5. 7^, denotes that the number 1 is to be squared. 8^, denotes that the number 8 is to be cubed. &c» OF ADDITION. Addition is the collecting or putting of several numbers together, in order to find their sum, or the total amount of the whole. This is done as follows : ^ . ^ Set or place the numbers under each other, so that each? figure may stand exactly under the figures of the same value, iha^ ADDITION. ft . thatisi units under units^ tens under tens, hundreds under hundreds, &c. and draw a line under the lowest number, to separate the given numbers from their sum, when it is found. -~Then add up the figures in the column or row of units» and find how many tens are contained in that sum.-— Set down exactly below, what remains more than those tens, or if nothing remains, a cipher, and carry- as many ones to the next row as there are tens. — Next add up the second row, together with the number carried, in the same manner as the first. And thus proceed till the whole Is finished, setting down the total amount of the last row. To PROVE Addition. • First Method. — ^Begin at the top, and add together all the rows of numbers downwards; in the same manner. as they were before added upwards ; then if the two sums agree, it may be presumed the work is right.— -This method of proof is only doing the same work twice over, a little varied. Second Method. — ^Draw a line below the uppermost number, and suppose it cut off. — ^Then add all the rest of the numbers together in the usual way, and set their sum under the num- ber to be proved.— r-Lastly, add this last found number aad the, uppermost line together ; then if their sum be the same as' that found by the first addition, it may be presumed the work is right.— This method of probf is founded on the plain axiom", that " The whole is equal to all its parts taken together.*' » Third Method.'-^Add the figures in the uppermost line together, and find example i. how many nines ^e contained in their sum. — Reject those nines, and 3497 g 5 set down the remainder towards the 6512 .S 5 • right hand directly even with the 8295 ^ 6 figures in the line, as in the annexed © — example. -r-Do the same with each 18304 g 7 of the proposed lines of numbers, set- -^ • ^ — ting all these excesses of nines in a co- W himn on the right-hand, as here 5, 5, 6. Then, if the excess of 9^s in this sum, found as before, be equal to the excess of 9's in the total sum 1 8804, the work is probably right.-* Thus, the sum of the right-hand column, 5, 5, 6, is 1^, the excess of which above 9 is 7. ' A^o the sum of the figures in the 10 ARITHMETIC the sum toul 18304, is 16, the excess of which above 9 is also 7 J the same as the former^. 2. 12345 OTHER EXAMPLES. 3. 12345 4. 12345 67890 98765 43210 12345 67890 67890 9876 543 21 9 876 9087 ^ \ 56 234 1012 302445 90684 •I 23610 290100 78339 11265 302445 90684 23610 * This method of proof depends on a property of* the number g, which, except the number 3, belongs to no other digit whatever ; namely^ that '^ any number divided by g, will leave the same re- mainder as .the sum of its figures or digits divided by 9 :** which may be demonstrated jn this manner. Demonstration. Let there be any number proposed, as 4658. This, separated into its several parts, becomes 4000 + 600 + 50 + 8. But 4000 = 4 X 1000 = 4 X (9«9 + 1) = 4 X 999 -J- 4. In like manner 600 = 6 xgg + 6', and 50 = 5 X 9 + 5. There- fore the given number 4658 = 4 X 999 +44-6x99 + ^ + 5 X9-P5 + 8=:4X999 + <5X99 + 5X9 + 4 + 6 + 5 + 35 and 4058 -r-p = (4 X 999 -f 6 X 99 + 5 X 9 + 4 + 6 + 5 + 8) -r- 9. But 4 X 999 + 6x99 + 5 X9i8 evidently divisible by 9, without a remainder 5 therefore if the given num- ber 4658 be divided by 9ji it will leave the same remainder as 4 + 6 + 5 + 8 divided by p. And the same, it is evident, will hold for any other number whatever. In like manner, the same property may be shown to belong to the number 3 ; but the preference is usually given to the number 9, on account of its being more convenient in practice. Now, from the demonstration above given, the reason of the rule itself is evident ; for the excess of 9*s in two or more numbers being taken separately, and the excess of 9's taken also out of the sum of the former excesses, it is plain that this last excess must be equal to the excess of 9's contained in the total sum of all these numbers 5 all the parts taken together being equal to the whole.

The method of doing which is as follows : Place the less number under the greater, in the same man« ner as in Addition, that is, units under units, tens under tens, and so on ; and draw a line below them. — Begin at the right hand, and take each figure in the lower line, or number, from the figure above it, setting down the remainder below it,— But ifthe figure in the lower line be greater than that above it, first borrow, or add, 10 to the upper one, and then take the lower figure from that sum, setting down the remainder, and carrying 1 , for what was borrowed, to the next lower figure, with which proceed as before; and so on till the whole is fiqished. * The whole body of foot soldiers is denoted by the word Iri" fantry; and all those that charge on horseback by the word Cccvo/r^. — Some authors conjecture that the terra infantry is derived fi-om a certain Infanta of Spain, who, finding that the army commanded by the king her father had been defeated by the Moors, assembled a body, of the people together on foot, with which she engaged ^and totally routed the enemy. In honour of this events and to distinguish the foot soldiers, who were not before held in much estimation, they received the name of Infantry, from her own title of Infanta. To 12 ARITHMETIC.

To PROVE Multiplication. There are three different ways of proving Multiplication, which are as below : . . First Method. — Make the multiplicand and multiplier change places, and' multiply the latter by the former in the same manner as before. Then if the product found in this way be the same as the former, the number is right. Second Method. — *Cast all the 9's out of the sum of the figures in each of the two factors, as in Addition, and set down the remainders. Multiply these two remainders together, and cast the 9's out of the product, as also out of tens ; or, which is the same things directly under the figure multi- plied by. And proceeding in this manner separately with all the ^ures of the multiplier, 1234567 the multiplicand, it is evident that we shall mul- 4567 tiply all the parts of the mul- — tipdicand by all the parts of 8641969= 7 times the mult, the multiplier, or the whole of 7407402 r= 60 times ditto, the multiplicand by the whole 6172835 r= 500 times ditto, of the multiplier : therefore 493826S =4000 times ditto. these several products being _ added together, will he equal 5638267489=4567 times ditto. tothewhole required product; ■■ ■■ as in the example annexed. * This method of proof is derived from the peculiar property of the number 9, mentioned in the proof of Addition, and tha reason for the one may serve for that of the other. Another more ampla demonstration <^ this rule may be as follows : — Let P and Q denote the number of 9^s in the factors to be multiplied, and a and 6 what remain ; then 9 P+a and 9 Gl+6 will be the numbers themselves, and their product is (9 P X 9 Gl) + (9 P X A) + (9 Gl X a) -f (a X h) i but the first three of these -products are each a preiCise number of 9's> because their factors are so, either one or both : these therefore being cast away, there remains only a x 6; and if the 9's also be cast out of this, the excess is the excess of 9*s in the total product : but a and h are the excesses in the factors them- Bcjves^ and a x 6 is their product ; therefore the rule is true., the 16 ARITHMETIC the whole product or answer bf the questioni reserving the renuinders of these last two, which remainders must be eauai when the work is right. — Ifote^ It is ccMnmon to set the lour remainders within the four angular spaces of a crossj at in the example below. Third 3/^^.-- Multiplication b also very naturally proved by Division ; for the product divided by either of the factors, will evidently give the other. But this cannot be practised till the rule of Division is learned. Muk. 3542 by 6196 21252 34878 3542 21252 21946232 Product. EXAMPLES.

Therefore, to complete the quotient, set the remainder at the end of it, above a small line, and toe divisor below it> thus forming a fractional part of the whole quotient. * This method of proof is plain, eoough : for since the quotient is the nimiber of times the dividend contains the divisor, the quo- tieni multiplied by the divisor must evidendy be equal to the dividend.

But silver, not having the purity of gold^ will not endure the fire like it : yet £ne silver will waste but a very little by being in the fire any moderate timej whereas copper, tin, lead, &c. will not only waste, but may be calcined, or burnt to a powder. Both gold and silver, in their purity^ are so very soft and flexible (like new lead, &c.), that they are not so useful, either in coin or otherwise (except to beat into leaf gold or silver), as wnen they are allayed, or mixed and hardened with copper or brass. And though most nations dlifer, more or less, in the quantity of such allay, as well asHn the samis place at different times, yet in £ng- land the standard for gold and silver coin has been for a long time as follows — viz. That 2*JL parts, of fine gold, and 2 parts of copper, being melted together, shall be esteemed the true standard for gold coin : And that 1 1 ounces and 2 pennyweights of fine silver, and . 1 8 pennyweights of cop|)er^ being melted together, is esteemed the true standard for silver coin, called Sterling silver. ♦ The original of all weights used in England, was a grain or com of wheat, gathered o^t of the middte of the ear, and, being W^Jl dri^d^ 32 of them were to m^e one pennyweight, 20 penny- weights / t6 AR|THM£71C.

The golden RULE,' or RULE OF THREE. - The Rule of Three teaches how to find a fourth pro- portional to three numbers given : for which reason it is sometimes called the Rule of Proportion. It is called the Rule of ,Three, because three terms or numbers are given, to find a fourth. And because of its great and extensive use- fuhiess, it is often called the Golden Rule. This Rule is usually considered as of two kinds, namely. Direct, and Inverse. The Rule of Three Direct is that in which more requires more, or less requires less. As in this; if 3 men dig 21 yards . of trench in a certain time, how much will 6 men dig in the same time ? Here more requires more, that is, 6 men, which are more than 3 men, will also perform, more work, in the same tihie. Or when it is thus: if 6 men .dig 42 yards, how much will 3 men dig in the same time ? Here then, less re- quires less, or 3 men will perform proportionably less work than 6 men, in the same time. In both these cases then, the Rule, OK the Proportion, is Direct j and the stating must be thus. As 3 : 21 :: 6 : 42, or thus,' As 6 : 42 1 : 3 : 21, But the Rule of Three Inverse, is when nlore requires less, or less reouires more. As in this i if S m^o dig a celtain quantity or trench in 14 hours, in how many hour^ Will 6 men dig the Kke quantity ? Here it ii evident that 6 men, being more than 3, will perform an equal quantity of work in less time, or fewer hours. Or thus : if 6 men perform a certain quantity of work in 7 hours, in how many hours will '3 nien perform the same ? Here less requires more, for 3 men will take more hours than 6 to perform the same work. In both those cases then the Rule, or the Proportion, is Inv^i^ ; and the stating must be thus. As 6 ? 14 :: 3 : 7^ or thus. As 3 : 7 :: 6 : 14. And in all these statings, the £:nirth term is found, hj inukiplying the 2d and 3d terms together, and dividing the product by the 1 st term. ^ Of the three given numbers ; two of them contain the supposition, and the third a demand. And for stating and working questions of these kinds, observe th^ following ge- lieral Rule :.• Stat^ RULE OF THREE. *» State the qt^stion, by setting down.in astraigbtline the three given numbers, in the following mannery'viz. ao that the 2d term be that ntunbea* of supposition which is of the same kind that the answer or 4th term is to be ; 'making the other number of supposition the 1st term, and the demanding number the dd term, when the question is in direct propor- tion ; but contrariwise, the other number of supposition the Sd term, and the demanding number the 1st term, when th^ question has inverse proportion. Then, in both cases, multiply the 2d and Sd terms to* gether, and divide the product by the Ist, which will give the answer^ or 4th term sought, viz. of the same denomma- tion as the second term. Nate^ If the first and third t^ms consist of diffinrent deno^ minations, reduce them both to the same : and if the second term be a compound number, it is mostly convenient to re- duce it to the lowest denomination mentioned.^-^If, after di« vision, there be any remainder,, reduce, it to the next lower denomination, and divide by the same divisor as before, and the quotieilt will be of this last denominatioh. Proceed in the same manner with all the remainders, till they be re* duced to the lowest denomination which the second admits of, and the several quotients taken together will be the an- swer required. N^te also. The reason for thtf foregoing Rules will appear, when we come to treat of the nature of Proportions.— Some- times two or more statings are necessary, which may always be known from the nature of the question. * EXAMPLES. i.

CX)MPOUN» C « 3 COMPOUND PROPORTKHf- Compound Proportion ^ows how to resolve such ques- tions as require two or more statings by Simple Proportion ; and these may be either Direct or Inverse. • • In these questions, there is always given an odd mimber of terms, either five, or seven, or nine, Sec. These are distm-. guished into terms of supposition, and terms of demand, there being always one term more of the former *than of the y^ latter, which is of the same kind with the answer sought. The method is thus : Set down in the middle place that term of supposition which is of the same kind with the answer sought.— -Take one of the other terms of supposition, and one of the demand- ing terms which is of the same kind with it ; then place one of them for a first term, and the other for a third, according to the directions given in the Rule of Three. — Do the same with another term of supposition, and its corresponding de- manding term ;, and so on if there be more terms of each kind ; setting the numbers under each other which fall all on the left-hand side of the middle term, and the same for the others on the right-^hand side. — ^Then^ to work By several Operations, — ^Take the two upper terms and the middle term, in the same order as they stand, for the first Rule-of-Three question to be worked, whence will be found a fourth term. Then take this fourth number, so found, for the middle term of a second Rule-of-Three question, and the next two under terms in the general stating, in the same order as they stand, finding a fourth term for them. And so on, as far as there are any i|iumber$ in the general Stating, making always the fourth number, resulting from each simple stating, to be the second term in the next following one. So shall the last resulting number be the answer to the question. By one Operathfi, -^Multiply together all the terms stand- ^ ^t^o^^^^Ur ing under eajch other, on the left-hand side of the middle I ^^eSL^ terni} and, in like manner, multiply together all those on the > ^^^^JgSul, right-hand side of it. Then multiply the middle term by \ ^f^iim^ jfthe latter product, and divide the result by the former pro- «^ ^^^^^-^^ 'duct } so shall the quotient be the answer sought. ^t^ij?^'*^ Vq|..

A Decimal Fraction, is that which has foi** its deno- minsttonaatmit (1), with as many ciphers annexed as the humet-atoi: ha^ places ; and it is usually expressed by setting down the numerator only, with a point before it, on the left- hand.- Thus, ^^ is -4, and -,^\ is •24,>and ^i-ttr is "074, arid ^^>5*y^^ is '00124 ; where ciphers are prefixed to make up as many places as are ciphers in the denominator, when there is a deficiency* of figures. • A mixed nuipber is made up of a whole number with some decimal iiraction, the one being separated from the .other by a point.; Thus, 3 '25 is the same as S-^y or 4^. ' Ciphers on the right-hand of decimals make no alteration in their value; for*4, or '40, or '400 are decimals having all the same value, each being == -/„, or |^. But when tliey are placed on the left-hand, they decrease the value in a ten-fold proportion: Thus, '4 is T^y* or 4 tenths ; but '04 is oiily -r^t or 4 hunciredfhs, and '004 is only -ri^j or 4 thousandths* The 1st place of deciinals, counted from the left-hand to- wards the^rightj j.s called the place of primes, or 1 Oths ; the 2d is the place of seconds, or lOOths ; the 3d is the place of thirdsj or lOOOths ; and so on. For, in decimals, as well ag in whole numbers,- the values of the places increase towards the left-hand, afid decrease towards the right, both in the same « same tenfold proportion ; as in the following Scale or Table «f Notation.

EvoLUTiONi or the reverse of Involution^ is the extracting or finding the roots of any given powers, ■ , The root of any number, or power, is such a number^ 29 being multiplied into itself a certain number of times, wul produce that power. . Thus, 2 is the square root or 2d root of 4, because 2' = 2 x 2=4; and 3 is the cube root of 3d root of 27, because 3' = 3 x 3 x 3 = 27. Any powei: of a gfiven number or root toay be found ex- actly, namely, by multiplying the number continually inta itself. But there are many numbers of which a proposed root can never be exactly found. Yet, by means of decimals, we may approximate or approach towards the root, to any de- gree of exactness. Those roots which only approximate, are called Surd roots; but those which can be found quite exact, are called Rational Roots. Thus, the square root of 3 is a surd root; but the square root of 4 is a rational root, being cfqual to 2 : also the cube root of 8 is rational^ being eqvial to 2 ; but the cube root of 9 is surd or irrational. Roots are sometimes denoted by writing the charstcter 4/ before the power, with the index of the root against it. Thus, the 3d root of 20 is expressed by ^0 5 and the square root or 2d root of it is v'20, the index 2 being always omit- ted, when oiily the square root is designed. When the power is expressed by several numbers, with the sign + or ~ between them, a line is drawn from the top of the sign over all the parts of it: thus the third root of 45 -12 is ^45 - 12, or thus ^(45-12), inclosing the numbers in p^entheses. But all roots are now often designed like poweti, with fractional indices : thus, the square root of 8 is 8^, th6 cube root of 25 is 25"^, and the 4th root q{ 45 -^ 1« is 45- 1,8 J*, •r (45 -.18)^. TO SQUARE ROOT. M TO EXTRACT THE SQJIARE EOOT. * DfViDB the given number into periods of two figuret each, by setting k point over the place of units^ mother over the place of hundredsi and so on, over every second figure^ both to the left hand in integers, and to the right in de^ cimals. Find the greatest square in the first period on the left-hand, and set its root on the right-hand of the given number, after the manner of a quotient figure in Division. . ■»•»• * The reason for separating the figures of the dividend into periods or portions of two places each^ is^ thdt the square of any single figure never consists of more thui two places $ the square of . a number of two figures, of not more than four places, and so i^ So that there will be as many figures in the root as the given nUin- ber contains periods so divided or parted off. And the reason of the several steps in the operation appears from the algebraic form of the square of any number of terms, whether two or three or more. Tlius, (a + b)^ = a» + 2ab + 6* =: a* + (2a + b) b, the squareof two tffirms ; where it appears that a is the first term of the root, and b the second term ) also a the first divisor, and the new divisor is 2a 4- ^> or denize the first term increased by the s^copd. And hence the manner of extractipp is thvs : 1st divisor a) a^ ^ 2ab -f 6* {a + b the root* a* 2d divisor 2a -f & | 2a6 + b* b\2ab + bf Again, for a root of three parts, a, b, c, thus : (a + 6 + c)* =; a* + 2a6 + 6® + 2tfc + 2bc + e« = a^ + (2a + 6) 6 -f (2a + 26 + c) c, the squaie of three terms, where a is the first term of the root, b the second, and c the third term ; also a the first divisor, 2a -f ^ the second, and 2a -^ 2b + c the third, each consisting of the double fif the root increased by the next term of the same. And the mode of extraction is thus : 1st divisor a) a* + 2a6 ^ 6^ + 2ac + 2bc + c'^ {a + b +c the root. a?- 2d divisor 2a + b b 2ab + i* 2a6 + A» N 3d divisor 2a + 26 + c I 2flc + 26c + c* c I 2flc + 26c + c* Vol. I.

Having divided the given number into periods of three £gures each, (by setting a point over the place of units, and also over every third figure, from thence, to t&e left hand iri y^hole numbers, and to the right iirxtedmals), find the nearest less cube to the first period ^ set. its root in the quotient, and subtract the said cube ftoffl^the fifsrperiod f to the remainder bring down the second period, and call this the resolvend. 2. To three times the square of the root, jiist found, add three times the root itself, setting this one place more to the right than the former, and calltliis siiiri the divisor/ Thctn divide the resolvend, wanting the last figure, by the divisort for the next figure of the root, which annex to the former ; calling this last figure #, and the part of the root before found let be called a. 3. Add alltogether these three products, ns^ely, thrice ^uare multiplied by ii^ thrice a multiplied by e s()uare, and ^ cube, setting each of them one place more to the right than the former, and call the sum the subtrahend ; which must hot exceed the resolvend ^ bdt if it does, then lilake the last £gure e lessj and repeat the operation for finding the subtra- hend> till it be less than the resolvend. 4. From the resolvend take the subtrahend, and to there- tnainder join the next period of the given number tdr s hew resolvend ; to which form a new divisor from the wlfole rOot 'now found ; and froith ihence another figure of the root, as directed in Article 2, and so oii. ^ ♦ The reason, for pointing the givcaa number into periods of three figures eacb> is because the cube of one' figure never amounts io more than three pl^es. And, for a similar, reason, a given number is pointed into periods of four figures for the 4th root> tif £ve figures for the 5th root, and so on. And the reason for the-other parts of the rule depends on the algebraic formatioad of a ci^be : for, if the root consist of the two parts a -{- h, then its cube is as follows ; (a + 6)' = a' + 3a*6-f 3aA* + b^ j where ei is the foot of the first part a' y the resolvend is 3a*6 + 3«i* -f J?, which is aUo.the same as the three parts of {he subtrahend ; also the divisor Is 3a* + 3tf, by which dividing the first two terms ©f the re^lvend 3o*^ + ao*, gives b for the le^kond part of the root 3 and so on. ixAMPLK. tft AWTHMET^, J^XAMPLC To extsaet tke cube root of 48328-544.

So, of these two numbers 6 and 3, the difference, or arithmetical ratio> is 6 — S or 3, but the geometrical ratio is y or 2. There must be two numbers to form a comparison : the number which is compared, being placed first, is called the Antecedent ; and that to which it is compared} the Conse^ quenl. So, in the two numbers above, 6 is the antecedentf and 3 the consequent. If two or more couplets of numbers have equal ratios, or equal differences, the equality is named Proportion, and the terms- of the ratios Proportionals. So, the two couplets, 4*, 2 and 8, 6,^ are arithmetical proportionals/ because 4 — 2 = 8 -^ 6 ;= 2} and the two couplets 4, 2 and 6, 8, are geometri- cal proportionals, because 4 ^ 4 ^ ^> ^^^ same ratio. To denote numbers as being geometrically proportional a colon is set between the terms of och couplet, to denote' their ratio; and a double colon, or else a'mark of equality, betweeri the couplets or ratios. So, the four proportionals, 4, 2, 6, 3 &re set thus, 4 : 2 : : 6 : 3, uhicli, means, that 4 is to 2 as 6 is to 3 ; or thns 4 : 2 3= 6 : 3, or thus, 4 = yy both which mean, that the ratio, of 4 to 2, is equal to the ratio of 6 to 3. . Proportion is tUstinguished into Continued and Disconti-* nued. When ' the difference or ratio of the consequent of one couplet, and the antecedent of (he ndxt couplet, is not the ' same as the common difference or ratio of the coufplets, the proportion is discontinued. 5o, 4, 2, ?, 6 are in discontinued arithmetical proportion^ because. 4 — 2=fc8 — 6 =2, where- as 8—2 = €; and'4, 2, 6, 3 are in. discontinued geometrical proportion, because 4 « |. a 2,«btit f =' 3, which is not the same.

In any continued arithmetical progression, the som of the two exti%mes is equal to the sum of any two / means that are equally distant from them, or tqual to double the middle term when there is an uneven number of terms* Thps, in the terms I, 3, 5, it is 1 + 5 = S + 3 ;= 6., And in the series 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, it is 2 + 14 = 4 + 12 = 6+10 = 8 + 8=16. TtoEoKiSM 3. Th^ difference between the extreme^ terms p£ an arithmetical progression, is equal to the common dif- ference of the series multiplied by one less than the nuipber of the terms.

I / GEOMETRICAL PROPORTION *^ PROGRESSION, In Geometrical Progression the numbers or terms have all the same multiplier or divisor. The mpst useful part of G^metrical Proportions is contained m the following^ theorems* Theorem 1. ,When four quantities are in geometrical proportion, the product of the two extremes is equal to the product of the two means. . Thus, in the four 2, 4, 3, 6, it is 2 x 6 = 3,x 4 = 12. And hence, if the product of the two means be divided by one of the extremes, the quotient will give the other extreme. So, of the above numbers, the prodirct of the. means 12 -f- 3 = 6 the one extreme, and 12 -r- 6 =2 the other extreme \ and this is the foundation and reason of the practice m the Rule of Three. Theorem 2. In any continued geometrical progression, the product of the two extremes is equal to the product of any two means that are equally distant from them, or equal to the square of the mididle term when there is an uneven number of terms. ■ Thus, in the terms 2, 4, 8, it is 2 x 8 =c 4 x 4 = 16. And in the series 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, €4, 128, it is 2 X 128 = 4 X 64 = 8 X 32 = 16 X 16 = 256* Theorem 3. The quotient of the extreme terms of si geometrical progression, is eqtial to the common ratio of the series raised to the power denoted by 1 less than thi number of the terms. Consequently the greatesit term is equal tof the least terra multiplied by the said quotient. So, of the ten terms 2, 4, 8, \^^ 32, 64, 128, 256, 512j 1024, the common ratio is 2, and one less than the numbef of ternis is 9 ; then the quotient of the extremes is 10^4 4- 2 = 512, and 2^ = 512 also. Theorem • x: V GEOMETRICAL PROGRESSION. 117 TThborem 4. The suih of all the terms, of any geome- trical progression, is found by adding the greatest term to th^ difference of the extremes divided by 1 less than the ratio. So, the sum of 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, 128, 256, 512, 1024, 1024 — 2 (whoseratiois2),isl024+-— — -— = 1024 + 1022 = 2046, jL — 1 The foregoing, and several other properties of geometrical proportion, are demonstrated more at large in the Algebraic part of this work.

There is also a third kind of proportion, called Musical^ which being but of little or no common use^ a very short ac- count of it may here suffice. Musical Proportion is when, of three numbers, the first has the same proportion to the third, as the difference between the first and second, has to the diderence between the second and third. As in these three, 6, 8, 12 ; where 6 : 12 :: 8 — 6 : 12 - 8, that is 6 : 12 :: 2: 4. When four numbers are in musical proportion ; then the first has the same ratio to the fourth, as the difference be- tween the first and second has to the difference between the third and fourth* As in these, 6, 8, 12, 18; where 6 : 18 :: H -^^ i 18 - 12> that is 6 : 18 :: 2 : 6. - When numbers are in musical progression, their recipro- cals are in/ arithmetical progression ; and the converse, that is, when numbers are in arithmetical progression, their reci^ f rocals are in musical progression. So in these musicals 6, 8, 12, their reciprocals 4i h A» are in arithmetical progressioo \ for 4 + A = A = T > ^i T + T^T'-Ta ^^^^ i^> ^^^ sum of the extremes is equal to double the mean, which is the property of arithme«- ticals. The method of finding out numbers in musical propor- tion is best expressed by letters iji Algebra. FELLOWSHIP, OR PAJITNERSHIP. Fellowship is a rule, by which any sum or quantity may be divided into any number of parts, which shall be in any given proportion to one another. * By this rul^ ar^ adjusted the gains or loss or charges of partnei;5 t 12« ARrrHMETia psurtners in company ; or the effects of bankrupts* or legacies in case of a deficiency of assets or effects ; or the shares of prizes ; or the numbers of men to form certain de- tachments; or the division of waste lands among* a number of proprietors. Fellowship is either Single or Double. It is Single, when the shares or portions are to be proportional each to one sin- gle given number only 5 as when the stocks of partners are all employed for the same time : And Double; when each portion is to be propoirtional to two or more numbers ; as when the stocks of partners are employed for different times. SINGLE FELLOWSHIP. GENERAL RULE. Add together the numbers that denote the proportion of the shares. Then say, As the sum of the said proportional numbers. Is to the whole sum to be parted or divided, So is each several proportional number. To the corresponding share or part. Or, as the whole stock, is to the whole gain or loss. So is each man's particular stock, To his particular share of the gain or loss. To PROVE THE Work. Add all the shares or parts to^ gether, and the sum will be equal to the whole number to be shared, when the work is right. EXAMPLES. 1 . To divide the number 240 into three such parts, a$ shall be in proportion to each other as the three numbers l^ 2 and 3. Here 1 + 2 + 3 = 6, the sum of the numbers. Then, as 6 : 240 : : 1 : 40 the 1st part, and as 6 : 240 : : 2 : 80 the 2d part, ' also as 6 : 240 :: 3 : 120 the 3d part. Sum of all 240, the proof. Ex. 2« \. SINGLE FELLOWSHfP. 121 Ex.'2.

The money lept, or forkorn, is called the Principal. And the sum of the principal and its interest,^ added together, is called the Amount. Interest is allowed at so much per cent, per annum ; which premium per cent, per annum, or interest of 100/ for a year, is called the rate of interest ; — So, Whe» SIMPLE INTEREST. IfS When interest is at 3 per cent, the rate is 3; - - - 4 per cent. - - 4; - - - 5 per cent. - - 5; - - - 6 per cent. - - 6; But, by lawj interest ought not to be taken higher than at " the rate of 5 per cent. Interest is of two sorts ; Simple and Compound. Simple Interest is that which is allowed for the principal lent or forborn only, for the whole time of forbearance. As the interest of any sum, for any time, is directly propor- tional to' the principal sum, and also to the time of continu- ance; hence arises the following general rule of calcula- tion. As 100/ is to the rate of interest, so is any given principal to its interest for one year. And again. As 1 year is to any given time, so is the interest for a year, just found, to the interest of the given sum for that time. Otherwise. Take the interest of 1 pound for a year, which multiply by the given principal, and this product again by the time of loan or forbearance, in years and parts, for the interest of the proposed sum for that time. NoUf When there are certain parts of years in the time, as quarters, or months, or days : they may be worked for, either by taking the aliquot or like parts of the interest of a year, or by the Rule of Three, in the usual way. Also, to divide by 100, is done by only pointing off two figures for decimals. EXAMPLES. 1. To find the interest of 230/ 10/, for 1 year, at the rate «f 4 per cent, per annum.

Compound I^nterest, called also Interest uppn Interest, Is that which arises from the principal and interest, taken together, tis it becomes due, at the end of each, stated time of payment. Though it be not lawful to lend mOhey at Compound Interest, yet in purchasing annuities, pensions, or leases in reversion, it is usual to allow Compound Interest to the purchaser for his ready money. Rules. — 1. Find the amount of the given principal, for the time of the first payment, by Simple Interest. Then con- sider this amount as a new principal for the second payment, whose amount calculate as before. And so on through all the payments to the last, always accounting the last amount as a new principal for the next payment. The reason of which is evident from the definition of Compound Interest* Or elsCi 2. Find the amount of 1 ^ound for the time of the first payment, and raise or involve it to the power whose index is denoted by the number of paynients. Then that power multiplied by the gi^cen principal, will produce: the whole amount. \ / 128 ARltHMETIC. , amount. From which the said principal' being ^ubti^actdil/ leaves the Compound Interest of the same. As is evident from the first Rule. EXAMPLES. I.

If any,one of the simples be of litde or no value with respect to the rest, its rat6 is supposed to be nothing ; as water mixed with wine, and alloy with gold and silver.

Then if only one difference atand ;^ainst any rate, it will be the quantity belonging to that rate ; but if there be seV.eral, their suni will be the. quantity. , - TUfe' examples may be, proved by the rule for AlHgation MediaL f Demonst, By connecting the less rate to the gteikter, atid placing the difference between them and the rate alternately, tho quantities resulting are such, that there is precisely as much gtified by 6ne quantity as is lost by the other, and therefore the gain' and loss upon the whole is equal, and is exactly the proposed rate : and the same will be true of any other two simples managed according to the Rale^ In like manner, whatever the number of siibples may be, and with how ttiany soever every one is linked, since it is always a less with a greater than the ^roean price, there will be an equal balance of loss and gain between every two, and consequently an equal balance on the whole. - a. e* o. « .It is obvious, from this Rale» that questions of this sort admit of a gneat variety of answers \ for, having found one answer, we may £nd as many more as we please,, by only multiplying or dividing each of the quaptities found, by 2, or 3, or 4, ^c: the reason of which is evident : for^ if two quantities, of two simples, toake a balance of loss and gain, with respect to the mean price, so must also the double or treble, the 4 or |- part, or any other ratio of these quantities, and so on, 0(2 in^mYt/m. These kinds of questions are called by algebraists indeterminate or unlimited problems 3 and by an analytical process, theorems may be raised that will give all the possible answers. ' K2 EXAMPLES.

To the Double R ule of Position belong such questions as have'their results not proportional to' their positions : such are those, in which the numbers souglit, or their parts, or* their multiples, are increased or diminished by some given absolute number, which is no known part of the number sought* RULE I*. Take or assume any two convenient numbers, and proceed with each of them separately, according to the conditions of the question, as in Single Position ; and find how much earJi result is different from* the result mentioned in the question, calling thes« differences the errors ^ noting also whether the results are too great or too little. * Demonstr,^ The RuKs is founded on tliis supposition, namely, thai the first errqr is to the second, as 'the difference between the true and first supposed number^ is to the diffbr^ce between the true and second supposed number 5 when that is no( the case, the exact answer to the question cannot be found by this Rule.— That thot Rule is true, according to that supposition^ may be thus proved. I^t a and b be the two suppositions, and a and b their results, produced by similar operation \ also r and s their errors, or the differences between the results a and b from the true result n ; and let x depote the number sought, answering to the true result If of the question.

Then, If the errors are aJike, divide the difference pf th^ products by the difierence of the errors, and the quotient will be tl^e answer.

END OF THE ARITHMETIC. [ 14i' 1 OF LOGARITHMS^ L rOG ARITHMS are ihade to facilitate troublesonie caIcH^ lations in numbers. This they do^ because they perform multiplication by only addition, and division by only subtrac- tidn, and raising of powers by multiplying the logarithm by the Index of the pbwer j and extracting of roots by dividing the logarithm of the number by the index of the root. For, lagarithms are numbers sd contri?ed| and adapted to othei^ numbers, that the sums and difierences of the former shall correspond to, and show, tlie products and <|uoti^nts of th^ fatter, &c. Or, niore generally, logarithms are the numerical ^tpp^ nents of ratios ; Or they are a series of numbers in arith^ metical Mhata * The invention of Logdritbchs is due to Lord Napier, Baron of Merckistton, in Scotland, and is properly considered as one of the inost useful inventions of modern times. A tabl^ of tbe<ie numben was first published by the inventor at Edinburgh, iii the year 16 1 4, in a treatise entitled Canon Mirificum liOgnrtthmorum ; which was eagerly received by all the learned thfotighoat Europe. Mr. Henry Briggs, then professor of geometry at Qresham College^ soon after the discovery, went to visit the noble nventor ; aft»r which, they jointly undertook the arduous task of computing new, tables on this subject, and redacing them to a more cdnvenieht form than that which was at first thought of. But Lord Napier dying soon after, the whole burden fell upon Mr. Briggs, who, with prodigious labour and great skill, made an entire Canon, 9.0 cording to the new form, for all numbers from i to 'iOOncs and from 9 XX,0\o 10 100, to 14 places of figures, and published it at London in the year 1(J24, in a treatise euiitled Arithmetica Loga<> jtlthmica, with directions for supplying the intermediate parts.

Mr. Briggs also computed the Logarithms of the sines^ tangents, and secants, to every degree^ and centesm, or 100th part of a degree^ of the whole quadrant ; and annexed them to the natural sines, tangents, and secants, which he had before computed, to fifteen places of figures. These Tables, with their construction and use^ were first published in the year 1633, after Mr. Briggs's death, by Mr. Henry Gellibrand, under the title of Trigonometria Britannica. Benjamin Ursinus also gave a Table of Napier's Logs* and of tines, to every 10 seconds. And Chr. Wolf, in his Mathematical Lexicon, sajs that one Van Loser had computed them to every single second, but his untimely death prevented their publica- tion. Many other authors have treated on this subject ;' but as their numbers are frequently inaccurate and incommodiously dis« posed, they are now generally neglected. The Tables in most repute at present, are those of Gardiner in 4to, first published in the year 1742 3 and my own Tables in 8vo, first printed in the year i78^> where the Logarithms cf all numbers may be easily found from 1 to lOCXXXXX) -, and those of the sines^ tangents, and secants, to any degree of accuracy required; Also, Mr. Michael Taylor's Tables iu large 4to, containing the common logarithms, and the logarithmic sines and tangents to cVery second of the quadrant. And, in France, the new book of logarithms by Calletj the 2d edition of which, in 1795, has the tables still farther extended, and are printed with what are called stereotypes, the types in each page being soldered together into a solid ^ass or block. Dodson's Antilogaritbroic Canon is likewise a very elaborate work, and used for finding the numbers answer'uig to any givea logarithm.

Thus 100, being the second power of 10, will have 2 for its loga^ rithm i and 1000, being the third power of 10, will have 9 for its logarithm: hence also, if 50 be s: iO'-^^'^^ then b 1*69897 Ae cofdmon log. of 50.

Sixthly, the log. of 86596431 is -9375, and the, log. of 9- 30 57204 is '96875 ; theref.

Descrtftiw, LOOARlTHliMS. US Vescripiim and Use rfthe Tablr j/^Logae^thms. HavinC explained the manner of forming a table of the logarithms of numbers, greater than unity; tne next thing to be done is^ to show how the logarithms of fractional quan- tities may be found. In order to this^ it may be observed, ' that as in the former case a geometric series is supposed to increase towards the lefty from unity, so in the latter case it is supposed to decrease towards the right hand, still be- ginning with unit ; as exhibited in the general description, page 148, where the indices being made negative, still show the logarithms to which they belong. Whence it appear^^ that as -h 1 is the log. of 10, so — I is the log. of Vrr or '1 > and as + 2 is the log. of 100, so -- 2 is the log. of ^w or ^01 : and so on* Hence it appears in general, th^t all numbers which con« sist of the same figures, whether they be integral, or frac- tional, or mixed, will have the decimal parts of their loga* rithms the same, but diSering only in the index^ which will be more or Jess, and positive or negative, according to the place of the first figure of the number. Thus, the logarithm of 2651 being 3-423410, the log. rf tVj or i^y or twyj ^c, part of it 5 wil^ be as'fbllows : Numbers.

Thus, A number having 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, &c, integer places, l;|ie index of it& log. is 0, 1, % 3, 4| &c. or 1 less than those * places. ^ And 15* LQGAmTHMS. And a decimal fraction having its first figure in the 1st, 2d, Sd, '4th, &c, place of the decimals, has always — 1, —2, —3, —4, &c, for the index of its logarithm, , It may also be observed, that though the indices of frac- tional quantities are negative, yet the decimal parts of their logarithms are always affirmative. And the negative mark( — ) may be set either before the index or over it. 1. TO nND, IN THE TABLE, THE LOGARITHM TO AKY NUMBER*. 1. If the given Number be less than 100, or consist of only two figures \ its log. is immediately found by inspection in the first page of the table, which contains all numbers from 1 to 100, with their logs, and the index immediately annexed in the next column. So the log. oi5 is 0*698970. The log. of 23 is V361728. The log. of 50 is 1 -698970, And so on. 2. y^ the Number be more than 100 but less than 10000; that is, consisting of either three or four figures; the decimal part, of the logarithm is found by inspection in the other pages of the table, standing against the given number, in this manner; viz. the first three figures of the given number in the first column of the page, and the fourth figure one of those along the top line of it ; then in the angle of meeting are the last four figures of the logarithm, and the first two figures of the same at the beginning of the same line in the second column of the page : to which is to be prefixed the proper index, which is always 1 less than the number of integer figures. So the logarithm of 251 is 2*399674, that is, the decimal '399674 found in the table, with the index 2 prefixed, be- cause the given number contains three integers. And the log. of 34*09 is 1-532627, that is^ the decimal -532627 found in the table, with the index 1 prefixed, because the given number contains two integers. . 3. But if the given Number contain more than four figures^; take out the logarithm of the first four figures by inspection in the table, as before, as also the next greater logarithm^ subtracting the one logarithm from the other, as also their corresponding numbers the one from the other. Then say» As the difference between the two numbers. Is to the difference of their logarithms, So is the remaining part of the given number. To the proportional part of the logarithm.

If the number consist both of integers and fractions, or is entirely fractional ; find the decimal part of the logarithm the same as if all its figures were integral ; then this, having prefixed to it the proper index, will give the logarithm re- quired. 5. And if the given number be a proper vulgar fraction : subtract the logarithm of the denominator from the loga-, rithm of the numerator, and the remainder will be the loga- rithm sought ; which, being that of a decimal fraction, must always have a negative index. 6. But if it be a mixed number ; reduce it to an improper fraction, and find the difference of the logarithms of the numerator and denominator, in the same manner as before.

This is to be found in the tables by the reverse method to the former, namely, by searching for the proposed loga- riit]im among those in the table, and taking out the corre- sponding number by inspection, in which the proper number of integers are to be pointed off^, viz. 1 more than the index. For, in finding the number answering to any given logarithm, the index always shows how far the first figure must 156 logarithms/ icnst be removed from the place of units, viz. to the Ifcfi; hand, or" integers, v^hcn tlxe index is affirmative; but to the-' right hand, or decimals, when it is negative. EXAMPLES* So, the number to the log. P532888 » 34*1K And the number of the log. 1*5S2882 is *34i 1. But if the logarithm cannot be exactly found in the table ^ take out the next greater and the next less, subtracting the one of these logarithms froiii the dther, as also their natural numbers the one from the other, and the less logarithm from the logarithm proposed. Then say> As the difference of the first or tabular logarithms^ Is to the difference of their natural numbers. So is the differ, of the given log. and the least tabular log. To their corresponding numeral difference. Which being annexed to the least natural number above taken, gives the natural number sought, corresponding to the proposed logarithm^ EXAMPLfi* So, to find the natural number answermg to the gives logarithm 1-532708.

Addition,^ in Algebra, is the connecting the qnaptities together by their proper signs, and incorporating or uniting into one term or sum, such as are similar, and can b^ united. As Sa + 2b — 2a = a + 2b j the sum. • The rule of addition in algebra, may be divided into three cases : one, when the quantities are like, and their signs like also ; a second, when the quantities are lite, but their signs unlike; and the third, when the quantities are unlike. Which are performed as follows*. CASE * The reasons on which these operations are fou tided, will rea- dily app^ar^ by a little reflection on the nature of the quantities to 16« ALOEBRA. CASE I. TVben tie Quantities are Liiey and have Like Signs. . « Add the co- efficients together, and set down the sum j after which set the common letter or letters of the like quantities, and prefix the common sign + or — • be added, or collected together. For, with regard to the first ex- ample> where the quantities are 3a and 5a, whatever a represents in the one term, it will represent the same thing in the other^ so that 3 tiroes any thiqg and 5 times the same thing, collected together, must needs make 8 times that thing. As if a denote a shilling \ then \\a is 3 shiirmgj5> and ba is 6 shillings, and their sum 8 shillings. In like manner, — 2a6 and — 7«^> or —2 times any thing, and —7 times the same thing, make —9 times that thing. As to the second case, in which the quantities are like, but the signs unlike ; the reason of its operation will easily appear, by reflecting, that addition means only the uniting of quantities to- g€Jther by means of the arithmetical operations denoted by their signs -(- and — , or of addition and subtraction ; which being of contrary or opposite natures, the one co-efficient must be sub- tracted from the other, to obtain the incorporated or united mass. As to the third case> where the quantities are unlike, it is plain that such quantities cannot be united into one, or otherwise added, than by means of their signs : thus, for example, if t^ be supposed to represent a crown, and h z shilling ; then the sum of a and b can be neither 2a nor 26, that is neither 2 crowns nor 2 shillings, but only 1 crown plus 1 shilling, that is a -f 6* in this rule, the word addition is not very properly used ; being much too limited to express the operation here performed. The business of this operation is to incorporate into one mass, or alge- braic expression, different algebraic quantities, as far as an actual incorporation or union is possible; and to retain the algebraic marks for doing it, in cases where the former is not possible. When we have several quantities, some affirmative and some ne- gative j and the relation of these quantities can in the whole or in part be discovered ; such incoi'por^^tion of two or more quantities into one, is plainly effected by the foregoing rules. It may seem a paradox, that what is called addition in algebra^ should sometimes mean addition, and sometimes subtraction. But the paradox wholly arises from the scantiness of the name giyen to the algebraic process; from employing an old term in a new and more enlarged sense. Instead of addition, call it incorporation, or union, or striking a balance, or any name to which a more ex- tensive idea may be annexed, than that which is usuj^Hy implied by the word addition ; and the paradox vanishes. Thus, f Thus, 2a added to 5a, mak;ps 8a. And —2ab added to — 7a^, makes — 9fl*.

Then change all the signs ( + and — ) of the lower line, or conceive them to be changed ; after which, collect all the terms together as in the cases of Addition*. \ EXAMPLES* From 7tf*-3* 9x* - 4y + 8 SJcyS + 6jr— y Take 3a*- 8* 6x^ + 5;^ - 4 My-1 ^ 6jr-4y I r m. ^ i ' -i..i. .Ill Rem. 4a* + 5^ Sjt*— 19^+12 44:j^ + 4+ 12^ + Sy From 5xy—\ 6 4y*— Sj;— 4 — 20— 6j:-;5xjr Take -2ji'j^4- 6 2/ + 2j?+4 3xy-9j; + S^'2ay Rem. 7jry— 12 2/— 5;^-8 - 28 + St "Sa^y-^^ay -*~«— From 8jr*3f-f6 5^xy'{-2a:^xy lx^+2^x—l8 + Si Take -2x*j;+2 7 4/ xy -{- 3 - 2xy 9^-12 +5^+j: Rem. I * This rule is founded on the consideration, that addition and subtraction are opposite to each other in their nature and operation^ ^s are thje signs -h and — , by which they are expressed and repre- sented. So that, since to unite a negative quantity with a positive one of the same iiind^ has the effect of diminishing it> or subduct- ing an equal positive one from it, therefore to subtract a positive (which is the opposite of uniting or adding) is to add the equal negative qu'antity. In like manner, to subtract a negative quan- tity, is the same in effect as to add or unite an equal positive one. So that, by changing the sign of a quantity from -f to — , of from — to +, changes its nature from a subduottve quantity to an additive one j and any quantity is ip effect subtracted^ by barely changing its sign, 5xy MULTIPLICATION. 171 Sxy - 30 7^3 _2 {a + h) Sjt/ + QOax/{xy +^ 10) Ixy - 5Q 2;r=-4 {a + h) 4xy -j- V2a*y\xy + 10) From /J 4- ^> take «— ^.

When + a is to be multiplied by + c; the meaning is, that -{- <2 is to be taken as many times as ther<^.are units in c ; and since the sum of any number of positive terms is positive^ it follows that -j- a X -}- c ip^kes -f- ac, % When 2 lOa 2b ALGEBRA. • EXAMPLES. - Sa la + 2^ -^c -ex i 1 1 20ab -Cab -2Sac -i'2iax 4ac -Sab Od'x 4x -2x^y — ifXy - xy -\2abc 36tf*jr* -6xy +4xy 9 -Sax 4x 1 — ax -6c +Sxy -4 — Sxyz — Sax CASE II. ' f ♦ When one of the Factors is a Compound Quantity ; Multiply every term of the multiplicand, or compound quantity, separately, by the multiplier, as in the former case; placing the products one after another, with the proper signs; and the result will be the whole product required. 2. When two quantities are to be multiplied together, the re- sult will be exactly the same, in whatever order they are placed $ for a times c is the same as c times a, and therefore, wjiep — a if to be multiplied by + c, or + c by — a : this is the same thing as taking - a as many times as there are units in + c ; and as the sum of any number of negative terms is negative, it foljows that — a X -|- c, or + '< X — c make or produce — ac. 3. When — « is to be multiplied by — c; here — a is to b« subtracted as often as there are units in c: but subtracting nega- tives is the same thing ^s adding affirmatives, by the demonstration of the rule for subtraction 5 consequently the product is c times a, •r + ac Otherwise. S^nce a —- a zr 0, therefore {a — a) X — c is also =: 0, because multiplied by any quantity, is still but 5 and since the first term of the product, or a X — c is 3: — ac, by the second case ; therefore the last term of the product, or — a x — c, niust be -{- ac, to make the sum iz 0, or — ac -^ ac zzQ', that is, — a X — c =: + ac EXAMPLES.

Note. In the multiplication of compound quantities, it is the best way to set them down in order, according to the powers and the letters of the alphabet. And in multiplying them^ begin at the left-hand side» and multiply from the left hand towards the ri^ht, in the manner that we write, which is contrary to the way of multiplying numbers. But in setting down the several products, as they arisei in the second and following lines, range them under the like terms in the lines above^ when there are such like quantkiee ; which is the easiest way for adding them up together. In many cases, the multiplication of compound quantities is only to be performed by setting them down one after another, each within or under a vinculum, with a sign of multiplication between them.

DIVISION. 4 \ Division in Algebra, like that in numbers, is the con^rse of multiplication j and it is performed like that of numberp also, by beginning at the Teft-hand side, and dividing all the p^rts of the dividend by the divisor, when they can be so divided ; or else by setting them down like a fraction, the dividend over the divisor, arid then abbreviating the fraction as much as can be done. This will naturally divide into the following particular cases. CISE DIVISION. 175 CASE I. When th^ Diwsor and Dividmd are both Simple QuantitUs; Set the terms both down as in division of numbers, either the 4ivisor before the dividend, or below it, li're the deno- minator of a fraction. Then abbreviate these terms as much as can be done, by cancelling or striking out all the letters that are common. :to them, both, and also dividing the one co-efficient by the other, or abbreviating them after the manner of a fraction, by dividing them by their common measure. ^ .

When both the terms are + , the quotient must be + ; be- cause + in the divisor X -f in the quotient, produces + in the dividend. 2. When the terms are both — , the quotient is also -f ; be« cause ^ in the divisor X + in the quotient, produces — in the dividend. 3. When one term is + and the other — , the quotient mast be —J because + in the divisor x — in the quotient produces — ki the dividend, or — in the divisor X + in the q^uotient gives -* Ih the dividend.

[ 18i> ] INVOLUTION. Involution is the raising of powers from any proposed root ; such as finding the square, cube, biquadrate, &c, of any given quantity. The method is as follows : * Multiply the root or given quantity by itself, as many tipes as there are units in the index less one, and the last pro- duct will be the power required.— Or, in literals, multiply the index of the root by the index of the power, and the result will be the power, the same as before. Note. When the sign of the root is +> all the powersof it will be 4- ; but when the sign is — , all the even powers will be .+f and all the odd powers — ; as is evident from multiplication. exampCes. «, the root tf* = square tf' z= cube tf * =r 4th power 41* = 5th power &c. — 2a, the root -f- 4^* = square '— 8/j^ = cube + 16^1* == 4th power J- 32a* = 5th power 2ax^ , the root + + 3A 4a^j?* =: cube 27*^ 1 6a*x* ■ I I «. 81** = 4th power. a*, the root a^ = square a^ = cube if = 4th power **°= 5th power &c. - Zab\ the root + 9a*i* = square - 27a'** = cube + Sia'^b* = 4th power. - 243a**'° = 5th power. , the root 2i ^ = square « W =: cube 16* - = biquadrate * Any powerof the product of two or more quantities, is equal to the same power of each of the factors, multiplied together. And an^ power of a fraction, is equal to the same power of the^p numerator, divided by the like [ibwer of the denominator. Also, powers or roots of the same quantity, are multiplied by one another, by adding their exponents ; or divided, by sobtract- ing their exponents. Hius, «^ X a* =««+*=; ff^.

The index of the first, or leading quantity, begins with the index of the given power, and in the succeeding terms decreases conti- nually by I, in every term to the last; and in the 2d or following quantity, the indices of the terms are O, 1, 2, 3, 4, &c, increasing always by 1. That is, the first teno will con-» tain only the 1st part of the root with the same index, or of — 1 -— — ' ' — ■■ I , ji ■ — ■ * Tbb ruW expressed in general tennsi is as follows t M 2 3 ^ ' 2 2 3 Nate* The sum of the co-e£ident»^ in every power, is equd to the number 2, wl^n raised to that power. Thus 1-4- 1 =: 2 in the first power ; I + 2 + 1 = 4 == 2^ in the square ; i 4. 3 4- 3 j+ 1 =: 8 =: 2^ in the cube, or third power ; and so on* ' the ItJVOLtfTIiDN. , -l$l I fllel^ame height as the inteticled 'power : and the kst teHn of the^ series will contain only the 2d part of the given teot, when raised aho to the same height'of the intended- p6wer: but an the other or intermediate terms will contain the ]pro^ ducts of some powers of both the members of the -root, in such sort, that the powers or indices of the 1st or leading •lembet will always decrease by 1» while those of the 2d member always increase by 1. 2; To find the Co^iffictents. The first co-eifficient is always 1, and the second' is the same as the index of the intended ' jpew^er ; to find the 3d co-efficient, multiply that tA die ^d term by the index of the leadkig letter in the sameterm^ and divide the product by 2 ; and so on, that is, multiply the co- efficient of the term last found by the index of the leading quantity in that terhi, and divide ^he product by the number of terms to that place, and it will give the co-efficient of the term next following; which rule will find all the co-efficients^ one after another. , Nate. The whole number of terms Will be 1 more than the index of the given power i and when both tel^ms of the root are +, all the terms of the power will be + ; but if the '^e-r cond term be — , all the odd terms wilt /be' +,- afed all the even terms — , which causes the terms to be + and — alter-* nately. Also the sum of the two indices, in each term, is always the same number, viz. the index of the required power: and, counting from the middle of the series, both ways, or towards the right and left, the indices of the two terms are the same figures at equal distances, but mutually changed places. Moreover, the co-efiicients are the saihe numbers at equal distances from the middle of the series, towards the right and left ; so by whatever numbers the increase to the middle, by the same in the reverse order they decrease to the end.

To find the Roots of Simple QuMntities. Extract the root of the co-efficient, for the numeral part \ and divide the index of the letter or letters, by the mdex of the power, and it will give the root of the literal part ; then annex this to the former, for the whole root sought*. ■■iiiUi * Any even root of an affirmative quantity^ may be either 4- or — : thus the square root of + c^ is either -^ a,ov — a ; be« cause + a X + a = + a*, and —a X — a r= + a^ also. But an odd root of any quantity will have the same sign as the quarittty itself: thus the cube root of -f a* is -f a, and the cube root of— a^is — ajfbr + ax +ax+a=:+«^, and —a X — fl X -^ azu -- a^. Any even root of a negative quantity is impossible; for neither + a x-^a, nor —a X — a can produce —a*. Any root of a product, is equal to the like root of each of the fBictors multiplied together. And for the root of a fraction, take ^he root of the numerator, and the root of the denominator. EXAMPLES. EVOLUTION. 19.S EXAMPLES. 1. The square root of 4fl*, is 2/i, 3* 2.

EXAMPLES. * As this method, in high powers^ ipay be thought too labo- rious, it will not be improper to observe, that the roots of com- pound quantities may sometimes be easily discovered, thus': Extract the roots of some of the most simple terms, and connect them together by the sign + or — , as may be judged most suit- able for the purpose. — Involve the componnd root, thus found, la- the proper power -, then, if this be the same with the given quan- tity, it is the root required. — But if it be found to differ oiily in some of the signs, change them fcom + to — , or from — to +, till its power agrees with the given one throughout Thus, EVOLUTION. 195 EXAMPLES. i.

An Infinite Series is formed either from division, dividing by a compound divisor, or by extracting^ the root of a coih- pound surd quantity ; and is such as, being continued, would run on infinitely, in the manner of a continued decimal fraction. But, by obtaining a few of the first terms, the law of the progression will be manifest; so that the series may thence be continued, without actually performing the whole operation.

ARITHMETICAL PROPORTION. Arithmetical Proportion is the relaticxi between two numbers with respect to their difference. Four quantities are in Arithmetical Proporti(Mi, when the difference between the first and second is equal to the dif- ference between the third and fourth. Thus, 4, 6, 7, 9, and Uy a -{- di b^ b -{- d, are in arithmetical proportion. Arithmetical Progression is when a series of quantities have all the same common difference, or when they either increase or decrease by the same common difference. Thus> 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, &c, are in arithmetical progression, hav- ing the common difference 2; and a, a -^ d, a + 2dy fl + 3</, a + 4^/5 a + 5dy &c, are series in arithmetical progression^ the eommon difference being d. The mpst useful part of arithmetical proportion is con- tained in the following theorems : « 1. When four quantities are in Arithmetical Proportion, the sum of the two extreme^ is equal to the sum of the two means. Thus, in the arithmetical 4, 6, 7, 9, the sum 4 + 9 = 6 + 7=:l3: and in the arithmetical fl, a+rf, A, p-k-d^ the sum a-^-b-^-d-zia + b+d. 2. In any continued . arithmetical progression, the sum of the two extremes is equal to the sum of any two terms at an equal distance from them. tAus, ARITHMETICAL PllOPORTION. *p^ Thus, ifAe ^^ries bfe 1, 3,5, 7, 9, 1 r, &c.

A triangular 314 ALGEBRA. A triangulir pile is formed by the continual Ikying of triangular horizontal co.urse^ of shot one above another, i% such a manner, as that the sides of these courses, called rows, decrease by unity from the bottom row to the top row^* which ends always in 1 shot. A square pile is £Drm^d by the continual laying of square horizontal courses of shot one above another, in such a man- ner, as that f he sides of these courses decrease by unity from the bottom to the top row, which ends also in 1 shot. In the triangular and the square piles, th& sides or faces being equilateral triangles, the shot contained in those faces form an arithmetical progression^ having for first tem^unity, and for lait term and number of terms, the shot contained in the bottom row ; for the number of horizontal rows, or the number counted on one of the angles from the bottom to the top, is always equal to those counted on one side in the ^ttom : the sides or faces in either the triangular or square piles, are called arithmetical triangles ; and the nuoaibers contained in these^ are called triangular numbers: abc, fig. 1, £FG, fig. 2, are arithmetical triangles. The oblong pile may be -conceived as formed from the square pile abcd ; to one side or face of which, as ai), a number of arithmetical^triangles equal to the face have been added : and the number of arithmetical triangles added to the square pile, by means of which the oblong pile is formed, is always one less than the shot in the top row ; or, which is the same, equal to the difference between the bottoooTrow of the greater ^ide and that of the lesser.

GEOMETRICAL PROPORTION, Geometrical Proportion contemplates the relation of quantities con^dered as to what part or what multiple one is of another, or how often one contains, or is contained in, another.— Of two quantities compared together, the first is called the Antecedent, and the second the Consequent. Their ratio is the quotient which arises from dividing the one by the other. Four Quantities are proporticmal, when the two couplets have equal ratios, or when the first is the same part or mul- tiple of the second, as the third is of the fourth. Thus, 3, 6, 4, 8, and a, ar^ b, br, are geometrical proportionals. or bt For ^ = |. = 2, and — = — = r. And they are stated thus, 3 : 6 :: 4 : 8, &c. Direct Proportion is when the same relation subsists be- tween the first term and the second, as between the third and the fourth : As in the terms above. But Reciprocal, or Inverse Proportion, is when one quantity increases in the same proportion as another diminishes : As in these, S, 6, 8, 4 ; and these, a, ar^ br^ b^ The Quantities are in geometrical progression, or con- tinuous proportion, when every two terms have always the same ratio, or when the first has the same ratio to the second as the second to the third, and the third to the fourth, §cc. Thus, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32, 64, &c, and a, ar^ at^, ar^, ar^y ar^, &c, are series in geometrical progression. , The most useful part of geometrical proportion is con- tained rtr the following theorems ; which are similar to those in Arithmetical Proportion, using multiplication for addi- tion, &c. . 1, When r GEOMETRICAL PROPORTION. 819 1. W^jen four qujuitities are in geometrical j>roportion, the product of the two extremes i$ equal to the product of the two means. As in these, 3, 6, 4, 8, where 3x8=6 X 4f=i24:i aad in tht^se, a» ar% b^ br^ where ax kr^ar x 2. When four quantities are in geometrical proportion, the product of the means divided by either of the extremes gives the other extreme. Thus, if 3 : 6 : : 4 : 8^ then 6x4 6x4 ■ ■ =: 8, and- ■ = 3} also if tf : ar :i b : br, then = ir, or — r— = a* And this is the foundation of the a or Rule of Three. 9* In any continued geometrical progression, the product of the two extremes, sekI that of any other two terms, ^quaUy ^stanl: fr(»n them, are equal to each other, or equal to the square of the middle term when there is an odd number of them. So, in the series 1, 2, 4, 8, 1(5, 32, 64, &c, it is 1 x 64 = 2 X 32 = 4" X 16 = 8 x 8 = 64. 4. In any continued geometrical series, fhe last term is f qual to the first multiplied by such a power bf the ratio as is denoted by 1 less than the number of terms. 'Thus, in the series, 3, 6, 12, 24, 48, 96, 8cc, it is 3 x 2^ = 96. 5« The sum of any series in geometrical progression, is {bund by multiplying the last term by the ratio, and dividin|r the difference of this product and the first term by the difc ference between I and the ratio. Thus, the sum of 3, 6, 192 X 2 — 3 12, 24, 48, 96, 192, is — -^ = 384- 3 == 381. And 2— i the suro of n terms of the series j, or, ar^, ar^^ ar^, &c, to , . ar^"^ X r— tf af—a r" — 1 I jg rz ~ = -a.

Reduction of Equations, is the finding liie value of the unknown quantity. And this consists in disengaging that quantity, from the known ones ; or in ordering the eqtia^ tion so, that the unknown letter or quantity may stan<i alone on one side of the equation, or of the mark of equality, without a co^efficient ; and all the rest, or the known quan- tities, on the other si€le.«-4n general, the unknown quantity i$ disengaged from the known ones,> by performing always the reverse operations. So, if the known quantities are con- nected with it by + or addition, they must be subtracted ; if by minus (—), or subtraction, they must be added'; if by multiplication, we must divide by them ; if by division, we ^ust multiply ; wheQ it is in any power, we must extract the root ; and when in any radical, we must raise it to the power.

And the ^ktion of such quadratics has been aheady given 'in simple equattoms. A compound qtladr^atic equation, is that^which contains the square of the unknown quantity in one term, and the ^ ifilfst power in' another term. As ax^ -^^ hx ^c. All compound quadratic equations, after being properly r^dticed, fall under the thr^e following forms, to which they miliist ' always be reduced by preparing them for sola- tion. 1. x^ 'Y oxsz b 2. a^ -- ax 1=: b 3. jr* - oT = - A The general method of solving quadratic equations, is by what is caUed completing the square, which is ^s follows : 1. Reduce the proposed equation to a proper simple form, as usual, such as the forms above ; namely, by transposing all the terms which <C6ntain the unknown quantity to one side of the elation, and the known terms to the other; placing the square term first, and the single power second ; dividing the equation by the co*efficient of the square or first term, if it has one, and changing the signs of all the terms, when that terhi happens to do negative, as that term must always be made positive before the solution. Then the proper solution is by completing the square as folio W8| viz. 2. Complete xYr S40 ALGEBRA. 2. Complete the unknown side to a squarei in this man- ner»' viz. Take half the co-efficient of the second term, and square it } which square add to both sides of the equation, then that side which contains the unknown quantity will be a complete square. 3. Then extract the square root on both sides of the equation *, and the value of the unknown quantity will b^ determined. * ^l^l^he square root of any quantity may be either + or — , therefore all quadratic equations admit of two solutions. Thus, the square root of + n« is either + nor-.ii5 for+nx+it and — n X — n are each equal to + n*. But the square root of — n*, or \/— n% is imaginaiy or impossible, as neither + n nor — n, when squared, gives — n\ So, in the first form, x^+ax:nb, w here x - f ia Is found =: ^b + i^*, the root may be either + ^FTT^, or — i/hTj^S since either of them being multiplied by itself produces b -f ^\ And this ambiguity is expressed by writing the uncertain or double Vign ± before •/^ + |^' ; thus x =z ± •^ + ^a" — ^a. • In this form, where x r: ± \^b + ^a^ — itf» the first value of X, viz. X zr + \/b + Ja« —^a, is always affirmative; for since ^* 4- ft is greater than ^*, the greater square must neces- sarily have the greater root ; therefore \/ft + ^a* will always be greater than •Jo*, or its equal ia-, and consequendy + ^b + .^* — ^ will always be affinnative. The second value, viz. x iz — ^b -f- i«* — i^ will always be negative, because it; is composed of two negative terms. There- fore when x' + ax — b, we shall have x zz + ^/b + Ja' — ^a for the affirmative value of x, and x r: — ^ft -f -Ja^ — ^a for the negative value of x. % * . In the second form, where x = ± v^6 4. ^^ -f ^a the first value, viz. x = + v^ft i- |a^ + |fl is always affirmative, since it is composed of two affirmative terms. But the second value, viz. JP = -^ -v/^ + -Ja^ + io, will always be negative j for since ft + Jos is greater than Ja^ therefore ^/b + ^a* wi ll be gr eater than \/ia% or its equal ia 5 and consequently -^ v^ft + ia' + ia is always a negative quantity. » Therefore, QUADRATIC EQtJA^tONS- Sit determined, making the' root of the known side either + or — , which will giv6 two roots of the Equation, or two values of the unknown quantity* 'Notey 1. The root of the first side of tKe equation, is always equal to the rpdt of the first term, with half the co-efficient -of the second tei^m joined to it, with its sign, whether '+ or — • ' ' * 2. All equations, in, which there are two terms including the unknown qijiantjt jr, and which have the index of the one just double that^ of the other, are resolved like quadratics, by completing the square, as above. 1" Thus, x^ + ^-^ =* K or ^^ + ^^ ™ *> o** ^ + ox^ :2:^ are the same as quadraticsi and the value ,of the unki^qwo quantity may be determined accordingly* ./ t ■ ^ i < ■ M <*■ III I ' 1*1 I II I II ■ I III II ■ ' I I II I U ' 1 • Therefore, when a^ — ax.zzb, we shall have x zf - f . y^^ 4- ^ + la for the affirmative value of a:; and j? =* — y6 -f ia^+^a for the negative vake of a? j i^ that' in both the first and second forms> the unknown quanti^ has alwi^sbtro values^ one of which is positive^ and the otb^r negative. But, in the third form, where ar =z ± v'ifl* — ^ + 1«* both^tho values of X will be positiv e/ when Ja^ is greater tli^n 0, FoxthfS first vjflue, viz. ar' =: -f ^/^a^ - b + -Ja will then be affirmative, being composed of two affirmaiiveteirmd; !«> The secQnd value, viz* .^r 5= .;--t;.

A Cubic Equation, or Equation of the 5d degree or power, is one that contains the third power of the unknown quantity. As a?^— (ur* -j^ bx =:c, A Biquadratic J or Double Quadratic, is an equation that contains the 4th power of the unknown quantity : As x^ — ax^ -f bx^—cx = d* An Equation of the 5th Power or Degree, is one that contains the 5th power of the unknown quantity : As pe^-^ax* + bx^-^cxP' + dx =^ e. And so on, for all other higher powers. Where it is to be noted, however, that all the powers, or terms, in the equation, are supposed to be freed from surds or fractional exponents* There are many particular and prolix rules usually given (pr the solution of some of the above-mentioned powers or (tiS ALGEBRA. . :or equations* • But they may be all readily solved by the following easy rule of Double Position, sometimes called Trial-and-Error. RULE. « 1. Find, by trial, two numbers, as near the trtie roofas you can, aiid substitute them separately in the given equation, instead of the imknown quantity 5 and find how much the terms collected together, according to their signs + or — , differ from the absolute known term of the equation, mark- ing whether these errors are in excess or defect. 2. Multiply the difference of the two numbers, found or taken by trial, by either of the errors, and divide the pro- duct by the difference of the errors,. when they are alike^ but by their sum when they are unlike. Or say. As the difference or sum of the errors, is to the difference of the two numbers, so is either error to the correction of its sup- posed number. 3. Add the quotient, last found, to the number belonging to that error, when its supposed number is too little, but subtract it when too great, and the result will give the true root nearly. 4. Take this root and the nearest of the two former, or any other that may be found nearer \ and, by proceeding in like manner as above, a root will be had still nearer than before. And so on to any degree of exactness required. Note ] . It is best to employ always two assumed numbers that shall differ from each other only by unity in the last jBgure on the right hand j because then the difference, or multiplier, is only I. It is also best to, use always the least error in the above operation. Note 2. It will be convenient also to begin with a single figure at first, trying several single figures till there be found the two nearest the -truth, the one too little, and the other too great ; and in working with them, find only one morQ figure. Then substitute this corrected result in the equation^ for the uftknown letter, and if the result prove too little, substitute also the number next greater for the second sup- position ; but contrarywise, if the former prove too great, then take the next less number for the" second supposition ; and in working with the second pair of errors, continue the quotient only so far as to have the corrected number to four places of figures. Then repeat the same process again with ^us last corrected number, and the next greater or less, *s th^ CUBIC, &c. EQUATIONS, 249 the case may require^ carrying the third corrected number to eight figures; because each new operation commonly doubles the number of true figures. And thus proceed to any extent that may be wanted. Examples. Ex. 1. To find the root of the^ubic equation x^ +**+ 9c = IDO, or the value of * in it. Here it is soon found that x lies between 4 and 5. As- sume therefore these two num- bers, and the operation will be 3IS fellows : 1st Sup. 2d Sup. 4 - X - 5 16 - ^* . 25 64 X' 84 - sums - 100 but should be 125 155 100 Again, suppose 4*2 and 4'3, and repeat the work as foU lows: 1st Sup. 2d Sup. 4'2 - jr - 4*3 17-64 ^ js* ^' 18-49 74-088 - x' - 79-507 95-928 100 sums 102-297 100 — 16 - errors - +55 the sum of which is 71. Then as 71 : 1,:: 16 : -2. Hence »r = 4'2 nearly. — 4-072 errors + 2-297 the sum of which is 6*369. As 6-369 fl :: 2-297 : 0*036 This taken fi-om - 4* 300 leaves x nearly = 4*264 Again> suppose 4-264, and 4-265, and work as follows: ' 4-264 ^ X - 4-265 18*181696 - ;^* - . 18*190225 77-526753 99-972448 100 X sums 77-5S1310 100-036535 100 -0-027552 - errors - +0O36533 the sum of which is -064P87. Then as -064087 : -001 : : -027552 : 0-0004299 To this adding - 4-264 gives X very nearly = 4-2644299 The 250 ALGEBRA. The work of the example above might have been much shortened, by the use of the Table of Powers in the" Arith- metici which would have given two or three figures by in- q>ection. But the example has been worked out so particu- larly as it is, the better to show the method. Ex. 2. To find the root of the equation x^ — 15jr* + 63x ss 50, or the value of x in it. Here it soon appears that x is very little above 1. Suppose therefore 1*0 and 1-1 > and work as follows : 1-0 - 1-1 63*0 - -15 1 *- 6^x - -15jr* x^ - sums - errors - sum •f the :1 ::1:'03 100 69-3 -18-15 1-331 49 - 50 52'4S1 50 -1 - 3-481 As 3*481 ; + 2-451 errors. correct. Hence x'= 1*03 nearly. Again, suppose the two num* bers 1-03 and 1-02, &c, ad follows : 103 - AT - I '02 64-89 - 63Jf 64*26 - 15-9135 — 15;v*- 15-6060 1-092727 x^ 1-061208 50-069227 sums 49*715208 50 50 + -069227 errors — •284793 •284792 As -35401 9 : -01 : : -069227 : -0019555 This taken from 1 '03 leaves 4: nearly = 1*02804 Note 3. Every equation has as many roots as it contains dimensions, or as there are units in the index of its highest power. That is, a simple equation has only one value of the' root ; but a quadratic equation has two values or roots, a cubic equation has three roots, a biquadratic equation ha$ four roots, and so on. And when one of the roots of an equation has been found by approximation, as above, the rest may be found as follows. Take, for a dividend, the given equation, with the known term transposed, with its sign changed, to the unknown side of the equation ; and, for a divisor, take x minus the root just found. Divide the said dividend by the divisor, and the quotient will be the equation depressed a degree lower th^n the given one. Find CUBIC, &c. EQUATIONS. 251 Find a root of this new equation by approximation, as before, or otherwisei and it will be a second root of tlye original equation. Then, hj means of this root, depress the second equation one degree lower, and' from thence £nd a third root, and so on, till the equation be reduced to a quadratic ; then the two roots of tjiis being found, by the method of completing the square, they will make up the remainder of the roots. Thus, in the foregoing equation, having found one root to be 1 "02804, connect it by minus with r for a divisor, and the equation for a dividend, &c, as follows : X - J -02804) x^ -• ISx" + eSx - 50 ( x* — 13-97l96r + 48-63627 = 0. Then the two roots of this quadratic equation, or ' X* - 13'97196jr se - 48*63627, by completing the square, are 6'57653 and 7-39543, which are also the other two roots of the given cubic equation. So that all the three roots of that equation, viz. x^— 15x^ + 6Sx = 50, d fi« 576*58 J^^d the sum of all the roots is found to b^ j»T«ofi'.iofl5, beine equal to the co-efficient of the and 7-39543 V ^ 1 ^r 1 • 1 • t_ 1 i- >2d term of tlje equation, which the sum of 15-00000 V^^ roots always ought to be, when thejr / are right. sum Note 4. It is also a particular advantage of the foregoing rule, that it is not necessary to prepare the equation, as for other rules, by reducing it to the usual final form and slate of equations. Because the rule may be applied at once to an unreduced equation, though it be ever so much embarrassed by surd and compound quantities. As in the following example : Ex. 3. Let it be required to find the root x of the equation Vl*4**-(*' + 20)'- + -v/i96A?"--(*' + 24)* =z 114, or the value of X in it. By a few trials, it is soon found that the value of x is but little above 7. Suppose therefore first that at is = 7, and then X = B. First, t$2 ALG£BRA. Firsts when .r s= 7j Second, when x ±z B.

Note B, The same rule also, among other more difficult forms of equations, succeeds very well in what are called exponential ones, or those which have an unknown quan* tity in the. exponent of the power ; as in the following example : • Ex. 4. To find the value of x in the exponential equation x"" = 100. For more easily resolving such kinds of equations, it is convenient to take the logarithms of them, and then com-, pute the terms by means of a table of logarithms. Thus, the logarithins of the two sides of the present equation are ff X log, CUBIC, &c. EQUATIONS. 235 X X iog. of iT = 3 the log. of 100. Then, by a few trials, it is soon perceived that the value of x is somewhere be- tween the two numbers S and 4, and indeed nearly in the middle between them, but rather nearer the latter than the former. Taking therefore first x = S'5, and then n 2*6, and working with the logarithms, the operation will be as follows : First Supp. X =« 3*5.

Take therefore again, x = 3-59727, and next = 3*59728, and repeat the operation as follows : * Firtt, Supp. i" 2= 3-59727.

Or take r = far, and d = 4^, by which the reduced equation takes this form, ;&' )|c ^cz^ 2d. Then CUBIC, &c. EQUATIONS. 255 Then substitute the values of ^r and d in this form, z =l^d+ V(^* + ^0 +{/^- V(^*+f^), or * = V^+V(^T^-|^^7^^, and the value of the root z, of the reduced equation s^ 4b az = i, wjll be obtained. Lastly, take x = «— -j^* which will give the value of x, the required root of the original equation x^ + px^ + qx czr^ first proposed. One root of this equation being thus obtained, then de- pressing the original equation one degree lower, after the manner described p. 250 and 251, the other two roots of that equation will be obtained by means of the resulting quadratic equation. N^e, When the coefficient a, or c, is negative, and c* is greater than d''^ this is called the irreducible case, because then the solution cannot be generally obtained by this rule. Ex. To find the roots of the equation x^^Sx^ + lOxsrS. First, to take away the 2d term, its coeflicient being ^ 6y its 3d part is — 2 ; put therefore ;r = « + 2 ; then 4r' = z3^6x*+ 12a -f 8 - 6x^ = - ez^ - 24.Z - 24 -J^lOx = + lOz + 20 theref. the sum z^ ♦ — 2z + 4=8 or z' * — 22 = 4 Here then «= — iS, ^ = 4, ^== — |, rf = 2. Tiieref. 4/£/4--v/K+^) = e/^i5+ v/(4-,V)= ^2 + -/ i^o=: i/2 + V^V^ = 1-57735 and 3 /i-^(^H-^ ^) = >^^2-^/(4-:^V)=^2 - ^/'^^ = 4/2 — V>/3 = 0-42265 then the sum of these two is the value of z = 2. Hence :r zz z + 2 = 4, one root of x in the eq. r'— 6x* + lOo: = 8. To find the two other roots, perform the division, &c, as in p.. 251, thus : x-4) J^— 6jr*+ 10jr-8(jr"-2;r + 2=B0 -2x^+ IOt -2ar*+ Sjt 2ar— 8 2ar— 8 Hence tS6 ALGEBRA. * Hence x^—2it = — 3, or a?f — 2ir +1 r: — 1, and r — 1 = ± \/-'l I r c=: 1 + v' —1 or = .1 - v' - *» the two other sought.

OF SIMPLE: INTEREST. As the interest of any sum*, ft)r any-time, is directly, pro- portional to the priocijxil sum^ and. to the time ; there^re • the interest of i pound) for 1 yoar> beine multiplied by any given principal sum', and by the time of its foH^earance^ in y^ars and part$> will give it^ interest for that time. That isj if there be put : # r = the rate of interest of 1 poimdper annum, p = any principal sum lent, / = the time it is lent for, and a = the amount or sum of principal and interest; then IS prt = the interest of the sum p; for th^time /, and conseq. p +prt or p X {I +rt) = a, the'amount for that time.

Let it be required to find, in what time any principal sum will double itself, at* any rate of simple interest. In this case, we must use the first theorem, a = /) + prty in which the amount a must be made = 2p, or double the principal, that* i», /) + prt ;= 2/?, ov-prt = /;, or r/ = 1 ; and hence / «= — . r Here, COlaPOUND INTEREST, $Sl Here^ r being thfe iaterest of 1/^ for 1 yearj it follows, that the doubling at simple interest, is equal to the quotient t)f any sum divided by its interest for 1 yfear.

When the compound interest, or amount, of any sum, is required for the parts of a year ; it may be deter- mined in the following manner : . 1//, For any time which is some aliquot part of a year :— Find the amount of 1/. for 1 year, as , before } then that root of it which is denoted by the aliquot part, will be the amount of 1/. This amount being multiplied by the prin- cipal sum, will produce the amount of the given sum as required. 2</, When the time is not an aliquot part of a year : — Reduce the time into days, and take the 365th root of the amount of 1/. for 1 year, which will give the amount of the same for 1 day. Then raise this amount to that power whose index is equal to the number of days, and it will be the amount for that time. Which amount being multiplied by the principal sum, will produce the amount of that sum as before.— And in these calculations, the operation by loga- rithms will be very useful. ' OF ANNUITIES- ANNUITY IS a term used for ""any periodical income^ arising from money lent, or from houses, lands, salaries, pensions, &c. payable from time to time, but mostly by annual payments. "" Annuities are divided into those that are in Possession, and those in Reversion : 'the former meaning such as have _ commenced ; and the latter such as will not liegin till some particular, event has happened, or till after some certain time has elapsed. When an annuity is forborn for some years, or the pay*- moits not made for that time, the annuity is said to be in Arrears. An annuity may also be for a certain number of years ;. or it may be without any limit, and then it is called a Per- petuity. The Amount of an annuity, forborn for any number of •years, is the sum arising from the addition of all the annul- .f i^s for that number of years j together with the interest due Upon eAchjafter it becomes due. . ^i. : 4j The ANNUITIES.' 261 The Present Worth or Value of an annuity, is the price or sum which ought to be given for it, supposing it to be bought off^ or paid all at once. Let a = the annuity, pension, or yearly rent ; n = the number of years forborn, or lent for ; ft = the amount of 1/. for 1 year i m = the amount of the annuity ; V = its value, or its present worth. Now, 1 being the present value of the sum R, by propor- tion the present value of any other sum a, is thus found : a • as R : 1 : : tf ; — • the present value of a due 1 year hence. In like manner — is the present value of u due 2 years a a A u o hence ; for r : 1 : : — : ~y- So also — ^ -^, — j, &c, will be the present values of a, due at the end of 3, 4, 5, &:c, years respectively. Consequently the sum of all diese, or — +-I+ A+r: + &c = {— + -5+-i + ri&<^-)x«» R R* R' k* ^R R* R^ R* ' continued to n terms, will be the present value of all the n years' annuities. And the value of the perpetuity, is the sum of the series to infinity. But this series, it is evident, is a geometrical progression, .1 . ' . liaving — both for its first term and common rsrtio, and the R ~ .•» number of its terms n ; therefore the sum v of all the terms^ or the present value of all the annual payments, will be Jl \^ l^ R R R" R" — 1 tf « = — -y— x«,or=j^3^x- 1 R -^ . ■■ When the annuity is a perpetuity; n being infinite, R** . 1 is also infinite, and therefore the quantity — becomes = 0, therefore " x -^ also = ; consequently the exprei- R — 1 R sion becomes barely v = — jr ; that is; any annuity divided by the interest of 1/. for } year, gives the value of .the per- petuity. So, if the rate of interest be 5 per cent. Then lOO/i -r- 5 = 20a is the value of the perpetuity at S per cent : Also IQOa -r- 4 = 25a is the value of the per- petuity r- 26^ ALGEBHA. • • • • petuifj' at 4 f)6r teni : Atid 100^ -r 3 £= SS-^ h tlie valut of the perpetuity ^t 5 pcp cent t ^nd so on. Again, because the amount of 1/. in n years, fe H", its increase in that time will be R*^— I ; but its interest for one single ytdr, or the annuity answering to that increase, is R — 1 ; therefore as R — 1 is to r" — 1, so is a to iw ; that r"— 1 is, m =: r X a. Hencc^ the several cases relating to R — 1 Annuities in Arrear, will be resolved by the foUowipg equations : m = X a ■= vR" i R — 1 . • R" i~ 1 a m R - i .

Then, since the angle a is equal to the angle D (by hyp,)> the side ac must fall on the side df ; and, in like manner, because the angle B is equal to the. angle £, the side BC must fall on the side ef. Thus the three sides of the triangle abc will be exactly placed on the thr^e sides of the triangle def: consequently the two triangles are identical (ax. 9), having the other two sides ac, Bfc, equal to. the two DF, EFy and the remaining angle c equal to the remaining angle f. <^ e, d. theorem III. In an Isosceles triangle, the Angles at the Base are equal. Or, if a Triangle have Two Sides equal, their Opposite Angles will also be equal. U the triangle abc have the side AC equal to the side bc; then will the angle d be equal to the angle a. For, conceive the angle c to be bisected, or divided into two «qua^>aru, by the line CD, making the angle A(ii> equidi.to the angfe*BCD. Then, THEOREMS. 273 Then, the two triangles acd, bcd, have two sides and the comained angle of the ,one, equal to two sides and the contained angle of the other, viz. the side ac equal to bCj the angle acd equal to bcd, and the side cd common; therefore these two triangles are identical, or equal in all respects (th, 1); and consequently the angle a equal to the angle b. q.. e. d.

Hence too it appears, that every equilateral tri- angle, is also equiangular, or has all its angles equal. THEOREM IV. When a Triangle has Two of its Angles equal, the Sides Opposite to them are also equaL If the triangle abc, have the angle a equal to the angle B, it will also have the side AC equal to the sideBc. For, conceive the side a B to be bisected in the point d, making ad equal to db; and join dc, dividing the whole triangle into the two triangles acd, bcd. Also conceive the triangle acd to be tiu-ned over upon the triangle bcd, so that ad may fall on bd. Then, because the line ad is equal to the line db (by k0.), the point A coincides with the point B,.and the point d with the point d. Also, because the angle a is equal to the angle B (by hyp.), the line ac will fall on the line bc, and the ex- tremity c of the side ac will coincide with the extremity c of the side bc, because dc is common to both ; consequently the side ac is equal to BC.

Then, in the triangle acd, because the side AC is equal to AD (by hyp.), the angle acd i^ equal to the angle adc (th. 3). In like manner, in the triangle bcd, the angle BCD is equal to the angle bdc, because the side Be is equal to BD. Hence then, tne angle acd being equal to the angle ADC, and the angle bcd to the angle bdc, by equal addi« tions the sum of the two angles acd, bcd, is equal to the sum of the two adc, bdc, (ax. 2), that is, the whole angle ACB equal to the whole angle adb. Since then, the two sides Ac, CB, are equal to the two sides AD, DB, each to each, (by hyp.), and their contained angles acb, adb, also equal, the two triangles abc, abd, are identical (th. 1), and have the other angles equal, viz. the angle bac to the angle bad, and the angle ab& to the angle abd. q. £• d. THEOREM VI. When one Line meets another, the Angles which it makes on the Same Bide of the other, are together equal to Two Right Angles. Let the line ab meet the line cd : then will the two angles abc, abd, taken to- gether, be equal to two right angles. For, first, when the two angles abc, ABD, are equal to each other, they are both of them right angles (def. 15). But when the angles are unequal, suppose BE drawH per- pendicular to CD. Then, since the two angles ebc, ebd, are right angles (def. 15), and the angle ebd is equal to the two angles eba, abd, together (ax. 8), the three angles, EBC, EBA, and abd, are equal to two right angles. But the two angles ebc, eba, are together equal to the angle abc (ax. 8). Consequently the two angles abc, abd» are also equal to two right angles, q. £. D* CoroL 1. Hence also, conversely, if the two angles ABC, abd, on both sides of the line ab, make up together twa right angles^ then cb and bd form one contixraed right Ijne CD. Corol. THEOREMS. ?75 CoroL 2. Henccy all* the injgles which can be made» at any point B, by any number of lines, on the same side of the right line cd, are^ when taken all together^ equal to twQ right anglesi. \ Corol. S. And, as all the angles that can be made on th« other side of the line CD are also equal to two right angles ; therefore all the angles that c^m be made quite round a point s, by any number of lines, are equal to four right angles. CoroL 4. Hence also the whole circumfer- ence of a circle, being the sum of the mea- sures, of all the angles that can be made about the centre f (def. 57), is the measure of four right angles. Consequently, a semicircle, or « 180 degrees, is the measure of two right angles ; and a quadrant, or 90 degrees, the measure of ene right angle. THEOREM VII. When two Lines Intersect each other, the Opposite Angles are equal. Let the two lines ab, cd, intersect in the point E; then will the angle aec be equal to the angle bed, and the angle ABD. equal to the angle ceb. For, since the line CE meets the line AB, the two angles aec, beg, taken together, are equal to two right angles (th. ^). In like manner, the line be, meeting the Jdne CD, majces the two angles bec, bed, equal to two right angles. , \ Therefore the sua\ of the two angles aec, bec> is equal to the sum of the two bec, bed (ax. 1). < And if the angle bec, which is common, be taken away 'from both these, the remaining angle aec will be equal to the remaining angle bed (ax. 3). . And in like manner it may be shown, that the angle aed is equal to the opposite angle bec. THEOREM VIII. When One Side of a Triangle is produced, the Outward Angle is Greater than either of the two Inward Opposite . Angles. T2 Let 276 GEOMETRY. Let ABC be a triangle, having the side AB produced to d ; then will the outward angle cbd be greater than either of the inward opposite angles a •r c. For, conceive the side bc to be bi- sected in the point £, and draw the line ACT, producing it till bf be equal to A£i and join bf. Then, since the two triangles A EC, bef, have the side AE =s the side ef, and the side ce = the side be (by suppos.) and the included or opposite angles at s also equal (th. 7), therefore those two triangles are equal in all^ respects (th. I), and have the angle c = the corresponding angle EBF. But tlie angle cbd is greater than the angle ebfj consequently the said outward angle cbd is also greater than the angle c In like manner, if cb be produced to G, and AB be bi- sected, it may be shown that the outward angle ABG, or its equal CBD, is greater than the other angle a. J>B THEOREM IX. The Greater Side, of every Triangle, is opposite to the Greater Angle ; and the Greater Angle opposite to the Greater Side. Let ABC be a triangle, havbig the side AB greater than the side ac ; then will the angle acb, opposite the greater side AB, be greater than thp single B, opposite the less side ac. For, on the greater side ab, take the part AD equal to the less side ac, and join cD. Then, since BCD is a triangle, the outward angle adc is greater than, the inward opposite angle b (th. 8). But the angle acd is equal to the said outward angle adc, because ad is equal to AC (th. 3). Consequently the angle acd also is greater than the angle B. And since the angle acd is only a part of i\cB, much more must the whole angle ACB be greater than the angle b. q. e. d. Again, conversely, if the angle c be greater than the angle B, then will the side ab, opposite the former, be greater than the side, ac, opposite the latter. For, if ab be ^ not greater than AC, it must be either equal to it, or less than i^. But it cannot be equal, for then THEOREMS. 277 • thtn the angle c would be eqyal to the "angle B (th. 3), which it is not, by the supposition. Neither can it be less, for then the angle c would be less than the angle B, by the former part of this ; which is also Contrary to the supposi- tion. The side ab, then, being neither equal to AC, nor less than it, must necessarily be greater, q^. fi. D. « THEOREM X. v The Sum of any Two Sides of a Triangle is Greater than the Third Side. Let ABC be a triangle ; t^en will the » p ^um of any two of its sides be greater than ...••* i the third side, as for instance, AC + cb greater than ab. For, produce AC till CD be equal to cb, or AD equal to the sum of the two AC + cb; and join bd: — ^Then, because CD is equal to cB (by constr.), the angle D is equal to the angle cbd (th. 3). But the angle abd is greater than the angle cbd, consequently it must also be greater than the angle d. And, since the greater side of any triangle is op- posite to the greater angle (th. 9), the side ad (of the tri- angle abd) is greater than the side ab. But ad is equal to AC and cd, or ac and cb, taken together (by constr.) ; therefore ac + cb is also greater than ab. <^ e. d. Cors/. The shortest distance between two points, is a singly right line drawn from the one point to the other. THEOREM XI. The Difference of any Two Sides of a Triangle, is Less than the Third Side. Let ABC be a triangle ; then will the difference of any two sides, as ab— ac, be less than the. third side bc. For, produce the less side ac to d, till AD be equal to the greater side ab, so that CD may be the difference of the two sides AB — AC ; and join bd. Then, because ad is equal to ab (by constr.), the opposite angles d and abd are equal (th. 3). But the angle cbd is less than the angle abd, and consequently also less than the equal angle d.

Then, since the outward angle aef, of the triangle bef, is greater than the inward opposite angle efb (th, 8)^^ and tunce these two angles also are equal (by the constr.) it follows, that those angles are both equal and unequal at the same time : which is impossible- Therefore the angle efd is not unequal to the alternate angle aef, that is, they are equal to each other. <^ £. d.

For, since the two lines ab, cd, are parallel, the angle agh is e<^ual to the alternate angle ghd, (th. 12). But the angle agh is equal to the opposite an?l^ £GB (th. 7).

Let ABCD be a quadrangle; then the sum of the four inward angles, a + B + c + D is equal to four right angles. Let the diagonal ac be drawn, dividing tl>e quadrangle into two triangle, aec, adc. Then, because the sum of the three angles of each of these triangles is equal to two right angles (th. 17} ; it follows, that the sum of all the angles of both triangles, which make up the four angles of the quadrangle, must be equal io four right angles (ax. 2). q. E. D. Coroh L Hence, if three of the angles be right ones, the fourth will also be a right angle. Cor^l. 2. And, if the sum of two of the four angles be equal to two right angles, the sum of the remaining two will also be equal to two right angles. « THEOREM XIX. In any figure whatever, the Sum of all the Inward Angles, taken together, is equal to Twice as many Right Angles, wanting four, as the Figure has Sides, Let .ABCD^ be any figure ; then the sum of all its inward angles, a + b + c + D + E, is equal to twice as many right angles, wanting four, as the figure has sides. For, from any.point p, within it, draw lines PA, PB, PC, &c, to all the angles, dividing the polygon into as many tri- angles as it has sides. Now the sum of the three angles of each of these triangles, is equal to two right angled (th. 17) ; ^erefbre the sum of the angles of all the triangles is equal to twice as many right angles as the figure has sides. . But the sum pf all the angles about the point P, which are so ^ ' ' many 282 GEOMETRY. many of the angles of the triangles, but no part of the in- ward ai}«{k^s of the polygon, is equal to four right angles (corol. 3, :h. ^), arid niUbt be deducted out of the former Sum.

D* THEOREM XX. "When every Side of any Figure is prq^uced out, the Sum of all the Outward Angles thereby made, is equal to Four Right Angles. Let A, B, c, &c, be the outward singles of any polygon, made by pro- ducing all the sides ; then will the sum A + B + c + D + Ej of all those outward angles, be equal to four right angles. For every one of thes^ outward angles, together with its adjacent inward angle, make up two right angles, as A+a equal to two. right angles, being the two angles made by one line meeting another (th* 6). And tbere being as many outward, or inward angles, as the figure has sides ; therefore the sum of all the inward and outward angles, is equal to twice as many right angles as the figure has sides. But the sum of all the inward angles, with four right angles, is equal to twice as many right angles as the figure has sides (th. 1 9). Therefore the sum of all the in<* ward and all the outward angles, is equal to the sum of all the inward angles and four right angles (by ax. 1). From each of these take away all the inward angles, and there remains all the outward angles equal to four right angles (by ax. 3). THEOREM XXI; A Perpendicular is the Shortest Line that can be drawn from a Given Point to an Indefinite Line. And, of any other Lines drawn from the same Point, those that are Nearest the Perpendicular, are Less than those More Remote. If AB, AC, AD^ &c, be line^ drawn from the given point a, to the indefinite line de^ of which AB is perpendicular.

But the less angle of a triangle is subtended by the less side (th. 9). Therefore the side AB is less than the side ac. Again, the angle ACB being acute, as before, the adja- cent angle aCd will be obtuse (by th. 6) ; consequently the angle d is acute (corol. 3, th, 17), and therefore is less than the angle c. And «ince the less side is opposite to the lesi angle, therefore the side ac is less than the side Ap. t q. E. !>• CoroL A perpendicular is the least distance of a givea point from a line. THEOREM XXII. The Opposite Sides and Angles of any Parallelogram ai^ equal to each other 5 and the Diagonal divides it into two Equal Triangles. Let ABCD be a parallelogram, of which the diagonal is bd ; then will its opposite sides and angles be equal to each other, and the diagonal bd will divide it into two equal parts, or triangles. For, since the sides ab and dc are pa- jrallel, as also the sides ad and Bc (defin. 32), and the line bd, meets them ; therefore the alternate angles are equal (th. 12), namely, the angle abd to the angle CDB, and the angle adb to the angle cbd. Hence the two triangles, having two angles in the one equal to two angles in the other, have also their third angles equal (eor. 2, th. 17), namely, the angle A equal to the angle c, which are twp of the opposite angles of the parallelogram* Abp, if to <tbe equal angles abd, cdb, be added the equal angles cbd, adb, the wholes will be equal (ax. 2)^ hamdy, the whole angle abc to the whole adc, which are the other two opponte angles of the parallelogram. , (^ E. D, Again, since the two triangles are mutually equiangular ,i ^nd have a side in each equal, viz. the common side bd 5 therefore the two triangles are identical (th. 2), or equal in all respects, namely, the side ab equal to the opposite sidef DC, and AD equal to the opposite side BC, and the wiiole triangle abd equal to the whol^ triangle scd. iq. s. b. Carets 284 GEOMETRY. ^ CoroL 1 . Hence, if one angle of a parallelogram be a right angle, all the other three will also be right angles, and the parallelogram a rectangle. CoroL 2. Hence also, the sum of any two adjacent angles of a parallelogram is equal to two right angles. THEOREM XXIII. Evert Quadrilateral, whose Opposite Sides are Equal, is a Parallelogram, or has its Opposite Sides F^llel. Let ABCD be a quadrangle, having the opposite sides equal, namely, the side ab equal to pc, and ad equal to bc ; then shall these equal sides be also parallel, and the figure a parallelogram. For, let the diagonal bd be drawn. Then, the triangles, abd, cbd, being mutually equilateral (by hyp.), they are also mutually equiangular (th. 5), or have their correspond- ing angles equal ; consequently the opposite side$ are paralUl (th. 13); viz. the side AB parallel to Dc, and AD parallel to BC, and the figure is a parallelogram, q. £. d. THEOREM XXIV. ' ^HOSE Lines which join the Corresponding Extremes of two Equal and Parallel Lines, are 'themselves Equal and Parallel. Let AB, DC, be two equal and parallel lines ; then will , the lines ad, bc, which join their extremes, be also equal and parallel. [See the fig. above.] For, draw the diagonal bd. Then^ because ab and dc are parallel (by hyp.), the angle abd is equal to the alternate angle bdc (th. 12). Hence then, the two triangles having two sides and the contained angles, equal, viz. the side ab equal to the side DC, and the side BD common, and the con- tained angle abd equal to the contained angle bdc, they have the remaining sides and angles also respectively equal (th. I); consequently AD is equal to Bc, and also parallel to it (th. 12). (^ E. D. THEOREM XXV.

UBS Let ABCD, ABEF, be two parallelo- jrams, and abc,- abf, two' triangles, staiiding on the same base ab, and be- tween the same parallels ab, de ; then will the parallelogram abcd be equal to the parallelogram abef, and the triangle ABC equal to the triangle abf. For, since the line de cuts the two ^ parallels af, be, and the two ad, bc, it makes the angle e equal to the angle aid, and the angle d equal to the angle BCE j(th. H) ; the two triangles, adf, bce, are therefore equiangular (cor. 1, th. 17); and haying the two correspond- ing sides, AD, BC, equal (th. 22), being opposite sides of a parallelogram, these two triangles are identical, or equal in all respects (th. ^). If each of these equal triangles then be taken from the whole space abed, there will remain the parallelogram abef ip the one case, equal to the parallel* ogram abcd in the other (by ax. 3). Also the triangles ABC, Abf, on the same base ab, and between the same parallels, are equal, being the halves of the said equal parallelograms (th. 22). (^ e. d. Corol. 1. Parallelogramsv or triangles, having the same base and altitude, ai*e equal. For the altitude is the same as the perpendicular or distance between the two parallels, which is every where equal, by the definition of parallels. Corol. 2., Parallelograms, or triangles, having equal bases ^nd altitudes, are equal. For, if the one figure be applied with its base on the other, the bases will couicide or be the same> because they are equal : and so the two figures, having^ the same base and altitude, are equal. THEOREM XXVI. If 2^ Parallelogram and a Triangle stand on the Same Base, and between the Same Parallels, the Parallelogram will be Double the Triangle, or the Triangle Half the Pa- rallelogram. Let abcd be a parallelogram, and abe a triangle, on the same base ab, and between the same parallels ab, dej then will the pa- rallelogram ABCD be double the triangle ABE, or the triangle half the parallelogram .- For, draw the diagonal ac of the paral- lelogram, dividing it into two equal parts (th* 22). Then because the triangle?, abc, ABE, 286 GEOMETRY. ABE, on the same base, and between the same parallek, are equal (th. 25) ; and because the one triangle abc is half the parallelogram abcd (th.

THEOREM XXVII. Rectangles that are contained by Equal Lines, are Equal to each other. Let BD, FH, be two rectangles, having the sides ab, bc, equal to the sides ep, FG, each to each ; then will the rectangle BD be equal to the rectangle fh. For, draw the two diagonals ac, eg, dividing the two parallelograms each into two equal parts. Then the two triangles ABC, EFG, are equal to each other (th. 1), because they have the two ^ides ab, bc, and the contained angle B, equal to the two side's ef, fg, and the contained angle f (by hyp).

A TRAPEZOID) or Trapezium having two Sides Parallel, is equal to Half a Parallelogram, whose Base is the Sum of those two Sides, and its Altitude the Perpendicular Distance between them.

Then is AF a parallelogram of the same altitude with the trapezoid ABCD, having its base A E equal to the sum of the parallel sides of the trapezoid; and it is to be proved that the trapezoid ABCD is equal to half the parallelogram af* Now, since triangles, or parallelograms, of equal bases and altitude, are equal (corol. 2, th. 25), the parallelogram dg is equal to the parallelogram he, and the triangle CGB equal to the triangle chb ; consequently the line BC bisects, or equally divides, the parallelogram af, and abcd is the half of it.

And because the angle fac is equal to the angle dab, being each a right angle, or the angle of a square ; to each of these equals add the common angle bac, so will the whole angle or. sum fab, be equal to the whole angle or sum cad. But the line fa is equal to the line ac, and the line ab to the line ad, being sides of the same square ; so that the two sides fa, ab, and their included angle fab, are equal to the two sides ca, ad, and the contained angle cad, each to each ; therefore the whole triangle afb is equal to the whole triangle acd (th. 1).

For, having drawn CA, cb, as before,. Then, in the tri- angle ABC, because the side cA is equal to the side cb, their opposite angles a and b are also equal (th. 3). Hence then, in the two triangles acd, bcd, the angle a is equal to the angle 9f and the angles at d are equal (def. 11); therefore their third angles are also equal (corol. I, th. 17). And having the side cd common, they have also the side ad equal to the side db (th. 2). Also, since the angle ace is equal to the angle bch, the arc AE, which measures the former (def. 57), is equal to the arc be, which measures the latter, since equal angles must have equal measures. CoroL Hence a line bisecting any chord at right angles, |Kisses through the centre of the circle.

In like manner, it may be showi) that df passes thrqugh the centre. Consequently the point d is the centre of the circle, and the three equal lines da, db, dc, are radii. ft; ?• ^? theorem xliii. > If two Circles touch one another Internally, the Centres of the Circles and the Point of Contact will be all in the Same Right Line. Let the two circles abc, ade, toucl^ one another internally in the point a ; then will the point A and the centres of those circles be all in the s^me ri&;ht line. For, let F be the centre of the circle ABC, through w^iich draw the diameter AFC. Then, if the centre of the other circle can be out of this line ac, let it be supposed in some other point as G ; through which draw the line FG cutting the two circles in b and d* Now, in the triangle afg, the surti of the two sides fg, GA, is greater than the third side af (th. 10), or greater than its equal radius fb. From each of these take away the common part fg, and the remainder ga will be greater than the remainder GB. But the point p being suppo^ the centre of the inner circle, its two radii, ga, gd, are equal to each other 5 consequently gd will also he greater than GB.

' For, let F be the centre of the circle abc, jhrough which draw the diameter afc, and produce it to the other circle at E. Then, if the ccntreof the other circle ade can be out .of the line fe, let it, if possible^ be supposed in some other point as G ; and draw the lines AG, FBDG, cutting the two circles in b and d. Then, in the triangle afg, the sum of the two sides af, AG, is greater than the third side fg (th. 10). But, f and c being the centres of the two circles, the two radii GA, CD^ are equal, as are also the two radii af, fb« Hence the s;um of ga, af, is equal to the sum of gd, bf ; and therefore this latter sum also, gd. bf, is greater than gf, which is absurd.

Any Chords in a Circle, which are Equally Distant from the Centre, are Equal to each other ; or if they be Equal . to each other, they will be Equally Distant from the Centre. Let ab, cd, be any two chords at equal distances from this centra g; then will these two chords ab, cd^ be equal to each other.

Then, the two right-aneled triangles, GAE, Gcf, having the side ga equal the side gc^ ana the side gs equal the side 49S GEOMETUT; sde GWf said the angle at x equal to ib0 abgle at f, therefore the two trtanfi^es GAB, GCF, are identical (cor. 2, th.

ToVf since ab is equal cd by soppoeition, the half abi^ equal the half of.

A Une Feq>endicular to the Extremity of a Radius, is a Tangent to the Circle. L'et the line adb be perpendicular to the radius CD of a circle ; then shall ab touch the circle in the point d only. For, from any other point £ in the line AB draw cfe to the centre, cutting the . circle in f. Then, because the angle D, of the triangle CDE, is a right angle, the angle at E is acute (th. 17, cor. 3), and consequently less than the angle d. But the greater side is always opposite to the greater angle (th. 9); there- fore the side ce is greater than the side cd, or greater than its equal cf. Hence the point e is without the circle ; aUd the same for every other point in the line ab. Consequently the whole line is without the circle, and 'meets it in the' point D only. .w- *'., . ~ THEORBiif THEOREMS. «d» THEOREM XLTn. - - I I When a Line is a Tangent to ia Circle, a Radius drawn to the Ppint of Contact is Perpendicular to the Taagent. Let the line ab touph the circumference of a circle at th^ point d; then will the radius cd be perpendicular to thi* tangent ab. [See the last figure.] ' For, the line , ab being wholly without the circumference except at the point d, every other line, as ce drawn froni the centre c to the line ab, must pass out of the circle to arrive at this line. The line cd is therefore the shortest that can be drawn from the point c to the line AB, and conse- quently (th. 21) it is perpendicular to that line. CoroL Hence, conversely, a line drawn perpendicular to a tangent, at the point of eontact> passes through die centra of the circle. THEOREM XLVITI. The Angle formed by a Tangent and Chord is Measured bjr Half the Arc of that. Chord. Let ab be a tangent to a circle, and cd a chord drawn from the point of contact c \ then is the angle' bcd measured by half the arc CFD, and the angle acd measured by half the arc cgd. For, draw the radius ec to the point of contact, and the radius £F perpendicular to the chbrd at h. . ' Then, the raius ef, being perpendicular to the chord CD, bisects the arc cfd (th. 41)« Therefore cf is half the arc CFD. in the triangle ceh, the angle h being a right one, the sum of the two remainiiig angles £ and c is equal to a right angle (cofoL 3, th. 17), which is equal to the angle bce, because. the radius c£ is perpendicular to the tangent. Froia each of these equals take awaf the common part or angle c^ and there remains the angle £ equal' to the angle bcd. But the angle e is measured by the arc of (def. 57;, which Is the half of^CFD \ therefore the equal angle bcd must also have the same measure^ namely, half the arc cfd of ^$he chord CD. Again, soo GEOMITRY. Again> the line gef, being perpendicular to tnc chord CD, bisects the «rc cg0 (th» 41). Therefore co is half Ae arc CGD. Now, since the line ce^ meeting SG, makes the sum of the two angles at E^ equal to two right angles (th. 6)» and the fine XJX makes with ab the sum of the two angles at c equal to two right angles } if from these^ twa equal sums there be taken away the parts or angles ceH and mcH, which have been proved equal, there remains the angle CEG equal to the angle ach. But the former of these, C£G» being an angle at the centre, is measured by the arc CG (def. 57) ; consequently the equal angle acd must also bave the same measure CG> which is half the arc qgd of the chord CD.

Hence also one right angle must have for it^ measure a quarter of the circunuerencej or 90 degrees. THEOREM XLIX. An Apgle at the Circumference of a Qrcle, is measured by Half the Arc that subtends it. Let bac be an angle at the circumference; It has for its measure, half the arc Bc. which subtends it. For, suppose the tangent »e passing tlirough the point of contact A. Then, the angle dag being measured by half the arc ABC, and the angle dab by half the arc ab (th. 48); it follows, by equal subtraction, that the difference^ or angle bag, must be measured by half the arc bc, which it stands upon. q. £• p. x.

An Angle at the Centre of a Orcle is Double the Angle at the Circumference, when both stand on the Same An:. Let c be an angle at the centre c, and D an angle at the circumference, both stand- ing on the same arc or same chord ab: then will the angle c be double of the angle D| or the angle d equal to half the angle c. For, the angle at the centre c is measured by the whole arc aeb (def. 57), and the angle atthecircum* ference d is measured by half the same arc aeb (th. 49) % therefore the angle D is only half the angle c, or the angle c double the angle o. THEOREM LU. f An Angle in a Semicircle, i;^ a Right Angle. If ABC or adc be a Semicircle ; then any angle D in that semicircle, is a right angle. For, the angle n, at the circumference, is measured by half the arc abc (th. 49), that is, by a quadrant of the circumference. But a quadrant is the measure of a right angle (corol. 4, th. 6 ; or corol. 2, th. 48). Therefinre the angle d is a right angle* THEOREM aos GEOMETRT. THEO&SM LIII.

For the angle d, at the circumference, is measured by half the arc aec (th. 49) ; and the angle bag, made by the tangent and chord, is also measured by the same half arc Asc (th. 48) ; therefore these two angles are equal (ax. 11)* THEOREM tlV. The Sum of any Two Opposite Angles of a Quadrangle Inscribed in a Circle, is Equal to .Two Right Angles. iiET ABCD be any quadtilaterat inscribed in a circle ; then shall the sum of the two opposite angles a and c, or b and i>, be equal to two right angles. For the angle A is meascrf ed by half the ;rrc dcb, which it stands on, and the angle t by half the arc dab (th^ 49) ; therefore Ae sum of the two angles a and c is measured by half the turn of these two arcs, that is, by half the circumference. But half the circumference is the measure of two right angles (corol. 4, th. 6) ; therefore the sum of the two oppo- site angles a and c is equal to two right angles.

The measure> or quantity, of a ratio, is conceived, by considering what part or parts the leading quantity, called the Antecedent, is of the other, called the Consequent ; or what part or parts the number expressing the quantity of the •former, is of the number denoting in like manner the latter. So, the ratio of a quantity expressed by the number 2, to' a like quantity expressed by the number 6, is denoted by -6 divided by 2, or | qr 3 : the number 2 being 3 times con- tained in ^, or tlie third part of it.

And, in general, a rectangle in geortietry is simi- lar to the product of the measures of its two dimensions of length and breadth, or base and height. Also, a square, it similar to, or represented by, the measure of its side multi- plied by itself. So that, what is shown of such products, is to be understood of the sqtiares and rectangles. CoroL 3. Since the same reasoning, as in this theorem, holds for any parallelograms whatever, as well as for the rectangles, the same property belongs to all kinds of paral- lelograms, having equal angles, and also to triangles, which are the halves of parallelograms ; namely, that if the sides about the equal, angles of parallelograms, or triangles, be reciprocally proportional, the parallelograms or triangles will be equal ; and, conversely, if the parallelograins or triangles be equal, their sides about the equal angles will be reciprocally proportional ' Corol. 4.

Also, let fih be parallel to ad or bc, and eig and KL parallel to ab or DC, the base of the cylinder ; the latter line kl meeting Bi in M, and the circular section of the sphere in n.

Also, in the rotation, the tliree lines or parts kl, kn, km, as radii, will describe corresponding circular sections of those solids, namely, kl a section of the cylinder, kn a section of the sphere, and km a section of the cone. Now, fb being equal to Fi or IG, and kl parallel to fb, then by similar triangles IK is equal to km (th. 82). Arid since, in the right-angled triangle ikn, in* is equal to ik* + KN* (th» 34; J and because kl is equal to the radius ig or 343 GEOMETRY. or IN, and KM rr IK, therefore kl* is jequal to km* + kn*, or the square of the longest, radiusi of the sud circular sections, is equal to the sum of the squares of the two others.

And as this is always the case in every parallel posir tion of KL, it follows, that the cylinder eb, which is com- posed of all the former sections, is equal to the hemisphere SFG and cone iab, .which are composed of all the latter sections.

From the inter- section D, which will be the centre of die circle, draw the perpendiculars de, DF, DG» and they will be the radii of the circle required.

Therefore all their third sides ab, bc, cd, da, are equal to one another, and the figure ABCD is equilateral. Also, all its four angles, a, b, c, d, are right ones, being angles in a semicircle.

Forj the opposite sides of parallelo- grams being equals fg and IH are each equal to the diameter Ac^ and fi and gh each equal to the diameter bd ; so that the figure is equilateral. Again, be- cause the opposite angles of parallelograms are equal, all the four angles f^ g> h, i, are right angles, being equal to the opposite angles at £. So that the figure fghi, having its sides equal, and its angles right ones, is a squarej and its sides touch the circle at the four points a, b, c, d, being perpen- dicular to the radii drawn to those points.

Then the point of intersection e will be the centrcj and the four lines^EA, £B, EC, £D, radii of the inscribed circle. For, because the four parallelograms ef, eg, eh, ei, have their opposite sides and angles equal, therefore all the four lines EA, £B, EC, ED, are equal, being each equal to half a side of the square. So that a circle described from the centfe X., with the distance £A, will pass through all the points A, 9, c, D, and will be inscribed in the square, or will touch its four sides in those points, because the angles there are right ones.

This done, the usual sym« bols or letters, for known and.unknown quantities, are em* ployed to denote the several parts of the figure, both the knbwn and unknown parts, or as many of them as necessary; as also such unknown line or lines as may be easiest found, whether required ot not. Then proceed to the operation, by observing the relations that the several parts of the £gure have to each other \ from which^ and the proper theorems in the foregcMug elements of geometry, make out as many equations independent of each other, as thel« are unknown quantities employed in them : the resolution of which equa- tions, in the same manner as in arithmetical problems, will, ^determine the unknown quantities, and resolve the problem proposed. » . As no general rule can be given for drawing the lines, and selecting the fittest . quantities to, substitute for, so as always to bring out the most simple conclusions, because different problems requure different mode^ of solution^ the best way to gain experience, is to try the solution of the same problem in different ways, and then apply that which succeeds best, to other cases of the sanaeicind, when they afterwards occur. The following particular directions, however, may be of some use. \4t% In preparing the figure, by drawing lines, let them bo either parallel or perpendicular to other lines in the Bgurey Or so as to form similar triangles. And if an angle be given; it will be proper to let the perpendicular be opposite to that anglei ftnd to fall from one end of a given line^ if possible. 2rf, SCO APPLICATION or AtGEBRA 2di In selecting the qu^mities proper to substitute fopj^ those are to be phosen, whether required or not, which li^ nearest the known or given parts of the figure, and by means of which this 9j^jt gdj^ceqt p^t$Aiy3^Iexp/jpss!Bd by addi- tion and subtraction only, without using surds. 3^9 When two lines or quantities are alike related to other parts of the figure or problem, the best way i§, not to make Dse of either* pf them separately, but to substitute for their sum, or diflfer^nce, or rectangle, or the sum of their alternate quotients, or for some line or lines, in the figure, to ^hidi tKey have botji thp ^aipe t^hx\on*^. • \ t , . . 4/A, When thei ayea^ or the p^metpr, of a. figure, b p^^n^ pat such parts of it as have <^y .^ temotfi .rdation /to the parts required: it is sometime! .of pse to assume asuathies figure similar to the proponed om^f having. one side iiqualito linity, or some other known qnastity.
