So, an appropriate use of them is enough to obtain the development of the mean anomaly according to the natural anomaly, that is the Kepler equation.
More precisely, after one Saros (223 lunations, or 18.03 years) the Sun's mean anomaly M increases by 10.4945 degrees, so a complete cycle with respect to the perihelion has a period of 18.03 x 360 / 10.4945 = 618 years.
