section 18 posted:

38m 06s
Whew! That was a tough one. A bit like arithmetic hell with all those so odd ways of measuring and extraordinary fractions.
A few issues:
~ 9.19 text says inches are the standard in ... Now the digit
I think it better if we read blank where the dots are otherwise the reader may think you have misread.

~ 18.18 1/24 plus 1/48 (not 1/18 as read).
~ 19.40 is similarly 1/24 plus 1/48 (not 1/18)
~27.40 ...5/12 plus 3/288 (not 8/288) in circumference
~35.17 (85 pipe) 4/12 plus 1/24 plus 7/288 (not 1/288) in circumference

That was unexpectedly boring. And I LIKE numbers. :roll:
At least it seems he's done with the enumeration stuff for now. I hope there will be more fun things to come. :D
Cheers,
Ava.

Not the most interesting material I have PL'd either.
Great reading of turgid material. But just one tiny stumble ~ 9.25 with 'where Virgo..' repeated.
