The coversedsine is equal to 1 minus the sine. In this figure, AE is parallel to OB; hence, EO = AC = sine of angle AOC, when radius OA - 1. Therefore, Coversedsine = 1 - sine = 1 - AC/OA = 1 - AC = 1 - EO = ER, when OA = 1.

"If AOB is an angle of 1 ° on the larger circle, it is also 1 ° on the smaller concentric circle, and the length of the arc AB is to the length of the arc CD as to radius OB is to the radius OD; or, arc AB:arc CD = OB:OD."

"In trigonometry, the arcs of circles are used to measure angles. All angles are supposed to have their vertexes at the center O of the circle, one side of the angle lying to the right of O, and coinciding with the horizontal diameter, as OB."
