Multiply the radius ( i.e., 3438') (separately) by their diameters in y9jar105 and divide by their true distances in 19jaraऽ: then are obtained their true (i.e., angular) diameters in minutes Sun's diameter in y9jaras x 3438' Sun's true distance in 199jaras minutes of arc: minutes Moon's diameter in yojards x 3438 Moon's true distance in y9jaras and the the
