Publisher: Project Gutenberg
ISBN/ASIN: 1933998644
Number of pages: 70

Description:
The book is prepared for average students with a thorough knowledge of the elements of algebra and geometry, and is believed to be a simple and elementary treatment founded directly upon the fundamental ideas of the subject. The theory is applied in the more advanced examples to develop the principal formulas of trigonometry and solid analytical geometry, and the general properties and classification of surfaces of second order.
