Pages 53 and 84 show the value of 1 revolution as reduced from the equation are by dividing it by the number of revolutions entering the interval.
The mean even of each set of 4 observations have been determined simply as (cant decipher) the weights of the mean are each ease page 85, the weight ascribed to each mean have been determined in this example are in the (cant decipher) problem. Each mean is affeated (?) with a weight the product of the reciprocal of the square of the mean (cant decipher) and the number of revolutions of the screw (?) entering the numeral; as before the square root of
