EUCLID, ALGEBRA, AND MENSURATION.

Three hours allowed for this paper.

Males,

Candidates in Scotland may answer two questions out of Sectic 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.)

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

The only signs 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.-Complete the following definitions :

A diameter of a circle is a straight line terminated by the circumference.”

“A square is a figure which has all its sides equal."

State the exceptions to the following rule: If in two triangles three of their parts, i.e. of their three angles and three sides, be equal, each to each, the other three parts will also be equal, each to each. Write out the axiom concerning parallel straight lines.

(These form one question.)

SECTION II.-1. The angles at the base of an isosceles triangle are equal to each other.

2. To bisect a given rectilineal angle.

The three lines which bisect the angles of an equilateral triangle meet in a point.

3. If a straight line, falling on two other straight lines, make the alternate angles equal to one another, these two straight lines will be parallel.

A line, drawn through the vertex of an isosceles triangle parallel to its base, will make equal angles with the two sides of the triangle.

SECTION III.-1. To describe a parallelogram equal to a given square, and having one of its angles equal to half a right angle.

2. To describe a square upon a given straight line.

If the square be described upon the semi-diameter of another square, compare the areas of the two squares.

3. If a straight line be divided into any two parts, the square on the whole line is equal to the squares on the two parts, together with twice the rectangle contained by those parts.

SECTION IV.–1. If a straight line be divided into two equal and also into two unequal parts, the squares on the two unequal parts are together double of the square on half the line, and of the square on the line between the points of section.

2. The angle in that segment of a circle which is less than a semicircle is greater than a right angle.

If the angle in a segment of a circle be double of the angle in the other segment, compare the arcs.

3. Two circles have the same centre; show that if a chord of the outer circle touch the inner circle all chords that are equal to it will touch the same circle.

MENSURATION. SECTION IX.-1. A triangular space whose sides are in the ratio, 5:5: 6 contains 588 squara yards: find the length of its sides.

2. A cottage which stands on a square plot of 729 feet, contains four rooms of equal size on the ground floor, and is divided into two equal parts by a passage four feet wide, having two rooms on each side : allowing one foot for the thickness of each wall, find the area of each of the four rooms.
