2. Given two points, find two other points that shall be at the same given distance from each of them. What is the least possible length of the given distance ?

3. Any two sides of a triangle are together greater than the third side. Construct the triangle when each side is equal to half the sum of the other two.

SECTION III. 1. The three interior angles of every triangle are together equal to two right angles. What ratio does the angle of a regular hexagon bear to a right angle ?

2. Triangles upon the same base and between the same parallels are equal. A line drawn through the middle points of the sides of a triangle is parallel to the basc.

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

Section IV. 1. If a straight line be divided into two equal parts and also into two unequal parts, the rectangle contained by the unequal parts, together with the square on the line between the points of section, is equal to the square on half the line. Construct a rectangle equal to the difference of two given squares.

2. If a straight line drawn through the centre of a circle cut a straight line in it which does not pass through the centre at right angles, it shall bisect it. Lines drawn at right angles to the sides of any figure inscribed in a circle from their middle points meet in one point.
