156 ページ - I. The sine of the middle part is equal to the product of the tangents of the adjacent parts.
48 ページ - As the sine of the angle opposite the given side is to the sine of the angle opposite the required side, so is the given side to the required side. Thus, if a (fig.
50 ページ - The third side is found by the proportion. As the sine of the given angle is to the sine of the angle opposite the required side, so is the side opposite the given angle to the required side.
41 ページ - Since, when an angle is acute its supplement is obtuse, it follows from the preceding proposition, that the sine and cosecant of an obtuse angle are positive, while its cosine, tangent, cotangent, and secant, are negative.
53 ページ - The sum of any two sides of a triangle is to their difference, as the tangent of half the sum of the angles opposite to those sides, to the tangent of half their difference.
