Page iv - IDE, of the said District, hath deposited in this office, the title of a book, the right whereof he claims as proprietor, in the words following, to wit : " Inductive Grammar, designed for beginners. By an Instructer." In conformity to the act of the Congress of the United States...
Page 33 - TO THEIR DIFFERENCE ; So IS THE TANGENT OF HALF THE SUM OF THE OPPOSITE ANGLES', To THE TANGENT OF HALF THEIR DIFFERENCE.
Page 12 - The Circumference of every circle is supposed to be divided into 360 equal parts, called Degrees ; and each degree into 60 Minutes, each minute into 60 Seconds, and so on.
Page 30 - In this case the" hypothenuse may be found by the square root without finding the angles ; according to the following PROPOSITION. IN EVERY RIGHT ANGLED TRIANGLE, THE SUM OF THE SQUARES OF THE TWO LEGS IS EQUAL TO THE SQUARE OF THE HYPOTHENUSE. In the above EXAMPLE, the square of AB 78.7 is 6193.69, the square of BC 89 is 7921 ; these added make 14114,69 the square root of which is nearest 119.
Page 48 - Field work and protraction are truly taken and performed ; if not, an error must have been committed in one of them : In such cases make a second protraction ; if this agrees with the former, it is to be presumed the fault is in the Field work ; a re-survey must then be taken.
Page 41 - To find the area of a trapezoid. RULE. Multiply half the sum of the two parallel sides by the perpendicular distance between them : the product will be the area.
Page 12 - Therefore all radii of the same circle are equal. 13. The diameter of a circle is a right line drawn from one side of the circumference to the other, passing through the centre ; and it divides the circle into two equal parts, called semicircles ; as AB or DE.
Page 48 - Let his attention first be directed to the map, and inform him that the top is north, the bottom south, the right hand east, and the left hand west.
