An engine can pump out 1,600 gallons per hour; after working for 19 hours it has pumped out •36 of the contents of a reservoir : in what time will it pump out the remainder with the help of another engine, whose power is •33 of its own ? and how many gallons will each have pumped out?

EUCLID, ALGEBRA, AND MENSURATION.

Males. 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 Can. dates are not permitted to answer more than one question in each section. (Marks are given for portions of questions.)

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

The only sigus allowed are + and =. The square on AB may be written “sq. on AB,” and the rectangle contained by AB and CD, “rect. AB. CD.” Other abbreviations (if employed) must not be ambiguous.

SECTION I.-Define a plane superficies, an isosceles triangle, and an oblong:

Explain the term Axiom; write out the eleventh axiom : in which proposition is this axiom first required ?

:

Give examples of converse propositions from the first book of Euclid.

(These form one question.) SECTION II. - 1. If the equal sides of an isosceles triangle be produced, the angles made by these lines produced with the base will be equal.

Show briefly that this property may be proved by a method similar to that employed in the 4th proposition of the first book.

2. The greater angle of every triangle is subtended by the greater side, or has the greater side opposite to it.

Write out the converse of this proposition, and show that one of the two propositions is proved directly and the other indirectly.

3. If two triangles have two angles of the one equal to two angles of the other, each to each, and one side opposite to one of the equal angles of the one equal to the side opposite to the corresponding equal angle of the other, the third angle of the one shall be equal to the third angle of the other.

Show that this property would follow as a direct corollary from the 32nd proposition of the first book.

SECTION III.-1. Straight lines which are parallel to the same straight line, are parallel to one another.

If the straight line, to which two others are parallel, lie between them, show that this property follows from Euclid's definition of parallel straight lines.

2. Triangles upon equal bases and between the same parallels, are equal.

Given the middle points of the sides of a triangle, construct the triangle.

3. 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 avgle contained by those two sides is a right angle.

Write out the corresponding proposition for obtuseangled triangles.

SECTION IV.-1. If a straight line be divided into two equal parts and also into two unequal parts, the rectangle contained by the uncqual parts, together with the

square on the line between the points of section, is equal to the square on half thə line.

At what point must a given line be divided, so that the rectangle contained by the two parts shall be the greatest possible ?

2. To draw a straight line which shall touch a given circle, from a given point without it.

Two of the common tangents to two equal circles which do not cut or touch one another intersect in a point equi-distant from their centres.

3. The angle in the segment of a circle less than a semicircle is greater than a right angle.

Show that only four equal triangles can be described on the same base having equal vertical angles.
