Page 18 - But the demonftration, as I conceive was never till now perfected, without the confideration of the Hyperbola, which, in a matter, purely arithmetical, as this is, cannot fo properly be applied. But what follows, I think I may more juftly claim as, my own, viz. that the Logarithm of the...

Page 23 - BCD. But if the angle included be oblique, add the logarithm of the difference of the given sides to the tangent of half the sum of the unknown angles, and from the sum subtract the logarithm of the sum of the given sides, or add its complement ; the remainder or sum will be the tangent of half their difference. Example. In the triangle ABC, having the...
Page 15 - Now, though the Notion of an Infinite Power may feem very ftrange, and to thofe that know the difficulty of the Extraction of the Roots of High Powers, perhaps impracticable ; yet by the help of that admirable Invention of Mr.

Nor have I been obliged to have recourfe to the method of indivifibles, or the arithmetick of infinites, the whole being no other than an eafy corollary to Mr. Newton's General Theorem for forming Roots and Powers.
