EUCLID AND ALGEBRA.

THREE Hours allowed for this Paper.

EUCLID. Capital letters, not numbers, must be used in the diagrams.

Not more than ten questions to be answered. 1. Give Euclid's definitions of a plane rectilineal angle, and of a triangle. Prove that if two triangles have two sides of the one equal to two sides of the other, each to each, and have also the angles contained by those sides equal to one another, they shall also have their bases or third sides equal; and the two triangles shall be equal, and their other angles shall be equal,

each to each, namely, those to which the equal sides are opposite

2. When is one straight line said to be perpendicular to another ? Draw a straight line perpendicular to a given straight line of an unlimited length, from a given point without it. Why must the given straight line be of unlimited length ?

3. Make a triangle of which the sides shall be equal to three given straight lines ; but any two whatever of these must be greater than the third.

Why is it made a condition, in working this problem, that any two of the given lines must be greater than the third ?

4. What are parallel straight lines ?

The straight lines which join the extremities of two equal and parallel straight lines towards the same parts, are also themselves equal and parallel.

5. What is a parallelogram? Describe a parallelogram which shall be equal to a given triangle, and have one of its angles equal to a given rectilineal triangle.

6. In any right-angled triangle, the square which is described on the side subtending the right angle is equal to the squares described on the sides which contain the right angle.

ALGEBRA.

The solution must in every instance be given at full length

A correct answer, if unaccompanied by the solution, or if not obtained by an intelligible method, will be considered of no value.

1. Add together 2x3 + 3x2y + 3xy2 + y?, 523 – 15x2y + 15xy2 5y3, 1033 + 10 yo, 17xʻy 17xy? ; and from their sum take

- bd) - 5 (ab - cd) — 7 (ac - bd) + 3ab 2 (ac + bd - cd).

3. Multiply a* + 49a2 + 2401 by a’ — 49, and divide 203 — 2x2 + 3x – 6 by a . 2. 4. Multiply as 2a2b + 3ab2 + 468 by a? 2ab 3b?, and divide æ4 + (262 — a2)xa + 64 by ocz + ax + b*.

DICTATION AND PENMANSHIP.

TWENTY MINUTES allowed for these Exercises. Candidates are not to paint their letters in the Copy-setting

Exercise, but to take care that the copy is clean and without Omissions and erasures in the Dictation Exercise will be counted

as mistakes. The words must not be divided between two lines; there is

plenty of room for the passage to be written. Write in large hand, as a specimen of penmanship, the word, Originality.

Write in small band, as a specimen of penmanship, the sentence,

“One truth is clear: whatever is, is right.”

DICTATION.

Write the passage * dictated to you by the Examiner, and punctu.

ate it correctly.

Az " It is natural to suppose that a Government thus arbitrary and vigilant must have looked with extreme jealousy

on the diffusion of free inquiry through the press. The trades of printing and book-selling, in fact, though not absolutely licensed, were always subject to a sort of peculiar superintendence. Besides protecting the copyright of authors, the Council frequently issued proclamations to restrain the importation of books, or to regulate their sale.”—Hallam.

Az "The king at length sent a message, requesting that a supply might be granted, with a threat of dissolving Parliament unless it was done. But the days of intimidation were gone by. The House voted that they would first proceed with the business of impositions, and postpone supply till their grievances should be redressed Aware of the impossibility of conquering

. their resolution, the king carried his measure into effect by a dissolution.”Hallam.

* The passages A1, A2, were given alternately where the number of Candidates was large, and there was danger of copying.
