The divider caliper measures and marks the diameter D of the larger hole on the tablet, fitting a tip in one end of B and the other drawing an arc (red in Figure 1). Then the caliper is used to measure D’ of the smaller hole. Fitting a tip where the red arc crosses the baseline, the second (violet) arc is outlined.
