Thus, against 3 feet 4 inches, and under 2 feet, stands 40 inches; and under 10 inches at top, stands 17 inches . then 10+17=57 true conteni in inches, which divide by 12 gives 4 feet 9 inches, the answer

2. The breadth being 3 feet, and height 2 feet 8 inches; required tlie content.

Thus, with breadth 3 feet 0 inches, and under 2 feet alop, stands 30

inches; and under 8 inches, stands 12 inches : now 36 and 12, make 48, the answer in inches ; and 48+12=4 feet, or just half a cord.

3. Admit the breadth to be 3 feet"l1 inches, and height 3 feet 9 inches ; required the content.

Under 3 feet at top, stands 70 ; and under 9 inches, is 18 : 70 and 18, make 88+12=7 feet 4 inches, or 7 ft. 1 gr. 2 inches, the answer.
