EUCLID, ALGEBRA, AND MENSURATION.

THREE HOURs allowed for this paper. Candidates in Scotland may answer two questions out of Section

IV. if they omit Section IX. With this exception Candidates are not permitted to answer more than one question in each section." (Marks are given for portions of questions.)

The square

EUCLID.
Capital letters, not numbers, must be used in the diagrams.
The only signs allowed in Geometry are + and =.

on P Q may be written “ sq. on PQ," and the rectangle con.

tained by P Q and RS, “rect. P Q R S.” Section I. Distinguish problems and theorems.

Define an obtuse angle, à segment of a circle, and a rhomboid.

Write out the 12th axiom.

Which of the six parts of two equal triangles, taken three and three together, are given in the 4th, 8th, and 26th proposition of the first Book, to prove the equality of other parts of the triangles ?

(These form one question.) SECTION II. 1. To make a triangle of which the sides shall be equal to three given straight lines.

What addition is needed that the problem may be always possible? Give examples. Show that the area of a triangle formed by the diagonals of an oblong and a line equal to twice the length of either of its sides is equal to the area of the oblong.

2. If two triangles have two angles of the one equal to two angles of the other, each to each, and the side adjacent to the equal angles in each equal, the three angles of the one shall be equal to the three angles of the other.

Draw a figure showing that two triangles may have two sides and one angle equal in each and yet may not be equal.

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

If two points be taken on the diameter of a semi-circle at equal distances from the centre, and perpendiculars

a

be drawn from them to meet the circle, the line joining the points in which the two perpendiculars meet the semi-circle will be parallel to the diameter.

SECTION III. 1. To a given straight line to apply a parallelogram, which shall be equal to a given triangle and have one of its angles equal to a given rectilineal angle.

On the base of a given triangle to construct an oblong equal to one-fourth of the given triangle.

2. If the square described on one of the sides of a triangle be equal to the squares described on the other two sides of it, the angle contained by these two sides is a right angle.

The sum of the squares on the diagonals of a rhombus is equal to the sum of the squares on the sides.

3. In any triangle the lines drawn from the angular points to bisect the opposite sides meet in a point.

SECTION IV. 1. In obtuse-angled triangles, if a perpendicular be drawn from either of the acute angles to the opposite side produced, the square on the side subtending the obtuse angle is greater than the squares on the sides containing the obtuse angle, by twice the rectangle contained by the side on which, when produced, the perpendicular falls, and the straight line intercepted without the triangle, between the perpendicular and the obtuse angle.

The square on the side of an equilateral triangle is equal to three times the square on the radius of a circle which passes through its angular points.

2. The opposite angles of any quadrilateral figure inscribed in a circle are together equal to two right angles.

Show that if two of the adjacent angles are right angles, the figure is a square, but that if two of the opposite angles are right angles, the figure is not necessarily a square.

3. If two straight lines cut one another at right angles within a circle, the rectangle contained by the segments of the one sball be equal to the rectangle contained by the segments of the other.

From this proposition deduce a method for constructing a square equal to a given parallelogram.

MENSURATION. Section IX. 1. A map is drawn on a scale of 1 in. to the square mile, and is 6 feet 5 inches long and 3 feet 6 inches broad: find the area of a map drawn on a slate which is 15 inches long and 6 inches broad

Females. THREE HOURS allowed for this paper. Candidates are not permitted to answer more than one question

in each Section. The solution must in every instance be given at such length as to
