acres.

Ε Χ Α Μ Ρ Ι Ε. How many acres are there in a field, whofe length is 3s rods, and breadth 24 rods?

35 X 243840 ; and 840+160=s& acres. Ans. The diameter of a circle being given, to find the

circumferente, Rule. As y is to 32 ; or more exactly, as 113 is to 355 ; fo is the diameter of a circle to the circumference. The circumference of a circle being given, to find

the diameter. RULE. AS 22 is to 7; or 355 to 113; fo is the circumference to the diameter.
