Σελίδα 27 - The circumference of every circle is supposed to be divided into 360 equal parts, called degrees ; and each degree into 60 equal parts, called minutes ; and each minute into 60 equal parts, called seconds ; and these into thirds, etc.
Σελίδα 117 - Therefore all the angles of the figure, together with four right angles, are equal to twice as many right angles as the figure has sides.
Σελίδα 3 - A diameter of a circle is a straight line drawn through the centre, and terminated both ways by the circumference.
Σελίδα 234 - E, is equal to twice as many right angles as the figure has sides, less four right angles.
Σελίδα 1 - ... common to the two triangles AFE, BFE, there are two sides in the one equal to two sides in the other, each to each ; and the base EA is equal to the base EB ; (i.

Σελίδα 374 - Subtract the square number from the left hand period, and to the remainder bring down the next period for a dividend. III. Double the root already found for a divisor ; seek how many times the divisor is contained...
Σελίδα 38 - AB the greater side for a distance, let a circle be described, meeting AC, produced in E, F, and BC in D; join DA, EB, FB; and draw FG parallel to BC, meeting EB in G. The angle EAB (32.
Σελίδα 38 - ACB (32. 1.) is equal to the angles CAD and ADC, or ABC together ; therefore FAD is the difference of the angles at the...
Σελίδα 397 - TO divide a given ftraight line into two parts, fo that the rectangle contained by the whale, and one of the parts, fhall be equal to the fquare of the other part. Let AB be the given ftraight line; it is required to divide it into two parts, fo that the rectangle contained by the whole, and one of the parts, fhall be equal to the fquare of the other part. Upon AB...
