In this case, it is a good idea to double check both bearing and
distance. We have calculated the proportionate position for the
corner. We have calculated and checked the cardinal moves from the
temporary stake to the corner point. Now, let's calculate the true
bearings and distances for the correct proportionate line.
Start again with the one-quarter section corner of Sections 35
and 36. The sketch shows only cardinal retracement data between
the one quarter corner and the temporary corner stake.
This sketch shows the moves we made from the temporary stake to
be the true proportionate point.
If we combine these figures, that is, total the cardinal data, we
will arrive at the cardinal data for the true line.
