Advancing LOPs, Continued Figure  9-14.  A  fix  from  several  LOPs. Three  lines  of  position  by  observation,  like  those  obtained  in  piloting,  do not  always  intersect  exactly.  Quite  often  a  triangle  is  formed.  If  one  or more  of  the  LOPs  must  be  advanced,  the  triangle  is  likely  to  be  larger. Frequently,  the  center  of  the  triangle  is  assumed  to  be  the  fix. If,  however,  one  or  more  lines  have  been  advanced,  more  weight  may  be given  to  a  line  that  has  not  been  advanced,  or  to  a  line  that  the  navigator has  more  confidence  in;  for  example,  favoring  a  first  magnitude  star over  a  third  magnitude  star.  In  figure  9-14,  note  that  the  plots  are  made from  three  separate  APs,  using  the  same  assumed  latitude  but  different assumed  longitudes. 9-30
