Whitcombe, to his own Question, inferte: .. . January. Qua : ;. REFORE I give the folution, it is necessary to point out the error made in the composition of the question, viz. in not mentioning that the leffer segment of the bale lould be nearest the perpendicular, which being ada mitted, the answer will be as follows : : CONSTRUCTION. • DRAW AC the А с ment of a circle which will contain an angle equal to the given one = 10 16° 12', and from E, the centre thereof, let fall the EG, and at Cere&t CD I to AC, and from where it meeets the periphery of the circle produced as at D ;' daw DA and DB, then will DAC be the required triangle. ..more CALCULATION. · Draw EA, EB, and ED, which evidently will be all equal, as being radius of the same circle ; allo draw aD # 19 AC; then in the isosceles. A AEB there is given Ab = 10 chains, and the 4 AEB = twice the given one 32° 24', to find EA = EB = 17,9216 + and EG = S2 17,21. 17,21. Then on the A EaD there is given ED = 17,9216, and aD = 9 chains, to find a E = 15,5 nearly. Then EG - E = G = DC = 1,71 chains nearly, and ưBC? + DC? = BD, the length of the walk, = 4,35 + chains, from whence the areas may easily be determined. Answer, by Robert Hafel, of Bristol, to W.
