2010 Edition Updates

The following corrections have been noted:

  • On page 53: The four leftmost italic labels on the diagonal lines
    that read 16, 18, 20, and 22 should read 14, 16, 18, and 20.
  • On pages 85-86: The diameters given for the figures are correct.
    The labels on the rest of the circles all need to be cut in half. Thus on the 8° diameter circle,
    the outermost circle should be labelled as 4° as that is the radius of the circle.
