  35. 5-3-2-4-6
  36. The coursing order is:
    5-3-2-4-6
    By placing your bell number (6) under your place bell position (3), you get:
    5-3-2-4-6 (place bells)
    4-6-5-3-2 (bell numbers)
    From this you can determine that
    a) the No.3 bell is 4ths place bell and is going to do 5/6 down next
    b) the No.4 bell is 5ths place bell and is going to do 3/4 up next.
  37. The coursing order is:
    5-3-2-4-6
    By placing your bell number (5) under your place bell position (4), you get:
    5-3-2-4-6 (place bells)
    2-4-6-5-3 (bell numbers)
    From this you can determine that
    a) the No.2 bell is 5ths place bell and is going to do 5/6 down next
    b) the No.6 bell is 2nds place bell doing the front work (lead, triple-dodge) and will be dodging 3/4 up next.
  38. The coursing order is:
    5-3-2-4-6
    By placing your bell number (4) under your place bell position (2), you get:
    5-3-2-4-6 (place bells)
    3-2-4-6-5 (bell numbers)
    From this you can determine that
    a) the bells dodging in 3-4 will be the No.2 and the No.6
    b) the bells dodging in 5-6 will be the No.3 and the No.5
