1. Curvæ CLH, AMH, ANH ad quintam ſeriem pertinent; re-
liquæ HL λ, HM μ, HN ν ad ſextam.
3. In harum primo gradu ordinata AK eſt inſinita in ſecundo AC
eſt maxima;
in tertio ſi fuerit AP = √{ACq/3}, & ordinetur PV,
erit PV maxima(unde radicum una ſemper major eſt quam √{ACq/3}
altera minor) in quarto ſi AQ = √{ACq/4} = {AC/2}, &
ordinetur QX,
erit QX maxima (unde radicum una major erit, altera minor ipsâ
{AC/2}).
