i E From the two Ex- tremes of the Diameter Q AB, let the Chords AE and BE be drawn, and let the Radius CO bi

The Sines and Coosines of two Arches being given, to find the Sines, and the Co-fines, of the Sum and Difference of those Arches. - •
Hence, if the Sines of two Arches be denoted by S and 3 ; their Co-fines by C and c; and Radius by R; then will
the Sine of their sum = % i. 3C
Co Roll A R Y 2.
Hence, the Sine of the Double of either Arch
(when they are equal) will be = †, and its Cofine = cos. Whence it appears that the Sine of
the Double of any Arch, is equal to twice the Rečiangle of the Sine and Co-sine of . single Arch, divided by Radius; and that its Co-fine is equal to the Difference of the Squares of the Sine and Co-fine of the single Arch, also, divided by Radius.
