the weight has been used.
All of the observations having been reduced to the value of a single revolution, the observation equations will all be of the form r + E = i ; where z is the mean interval for 1 revolution.
The observation equations as affected by their weights are shown upon page 86. The series of auxiliary equations, for r is shown upon page 86 as is also the first nominal equation for [underline]r[/underline].
The following page gives the auxiliaries and nominal equations for [underline]E[/underline]. The solution of the two nominal equations give the following values for the two unknown constants r= 27".194 ; E= -0".752.
