For, the rectangle contained by the sines of any two sides is to the square of the radius, as the rectangle contained by the sines of half the perimeter and its excess above the base, to the square of the cosine of half the angle opposite to the base, by Prop. 30; and as the rectangle contained by the sines of the two excesses of half the perimeter above each of the sides to the square of the sine of half the angle opposite to the base, by Prop. 29: therefore, the rectangle contained by the sines of half the perimeter and its excess above the base, is to the rectangle contained by the sines of the two excesses of half the perimeter above each of the sides, (as the square of the cosine to the square of the sine of half the angle opposite to the base, that is,) as the square of the radius to the square of the tangent of half the angle opposite to the base. Q. E. D. * Solution of the several Cases of Right Angled and Oblique Angled Spherical Triangles. GENERAL PROPOSITION. In a right angled spherical triangle, of the three sides and three angles, any two being given, besides the right angle, the other three may be found. 1.

The two quantities, in the same analogy, marked with asteriscs, are both of the same affection ; that is, both at the same time less, or both at the same time greater, than 90°. Cases 7, 8, 9, are doubtful, for two triangles may have the given things, but have the things sought in one of them the supplements of the things sought in the other. In the remaining cases, if the two given quantities which occur in the previous terms of the same analogy are both of the same affection, the last term will be less than 90°; but if they are of different affection, the last term will be greater than 90°. These limitations are founded on the 13th, 14th and 15th Propositions. 2. Rules for the sixteen Cases of Right Angled Spherical Trigonometry, expressed in general terms. Ecosine. Given. Case. Sought.
