When ye can diuide the yeare of our lord into foure equall partes, then is it leape yeare.

Adde to the yere of our Lord. 1. Then diuide that summe by. xix. the remain is the prime or golden nūber.

A rule to fynde the Epact for euer.

Multiply the pryme by. xi. diuide by. xxx. The remayne is the pryme or the Epacte. And note that the pryme and Epact begynne at Marche, seruyng for the chaunge of the Moone. &c.
