SECTION II.

MENSURATION.

1. Mensuration of Superäicies.

304. The area of a figure is the space contained within the bounds of its surface, without any regard to thickness, and is estimated by the number of squares contained in the same; the side of those squares being either an inch, a foot, a yard, a rod, &c. Hence the area is said to be so many square inches, square feet, square yards, or square rods, &c.

305. To find the area of a parallelogram (65), whether it be a square, a rectangle, a rhombus, or a rhomboid.

RULE.—Multiply the length by the breadth, or perpendicular height, and the product will be the area.

306. To find the area of a triangle. (64) : RULE 1.-Multiply the base by half the perpendicular height, and tne product will be the area.

RULE 2.-If the three sides only are given, add these togethe: and take half the sum ; from the half sum subtract each side separately ; multiply the half sum and the three remainders continually together, and the square root of the last product will be the area of the triangle.
