...II. When the three given parts are two sides and the included angle. — As the sum of the two given sides is to their difference, so is the tangent of half the sum of the opposite angles to the tangent of half their difference. In the triangle ABC, AB = 345, and BC = 174,... Practical Military Surveying and Sketching: With the Use of the Compass and ...

...quantities we proceed as follows : — Suppose AB, BC, known, and the angle ABC. Then as the sum of the two sides Is to their difference, So is the tangent of half the sum of the two unknown angles To the tangent of half their difference. Half their difference thus found, added to... Popular and Mathematical Astronomy, with the principal formulæ of Plane and ...
