Σελίδα 56 - 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 of the line between the points of section, is equal to the square of half the line.
Σελίδα 26 - Wherefore, if a straight line, &c. QED PROPOSITION XXIX. THEOREM. Jf a straight line fall upon two parallel straight lines, it makes the alternate angles equal...
Σελίδα 99 - The angle in a semicircle is a right angle ; the angle in a segment greater than a semicircle is less than a right angle ; and the angle in a segment less than a semicircle is greater than a right angle.
Σελίδα 15 - The angles which one straight line makes with another upon one side of it, are either two right angles, or are together equal to two right angles. Let the straight line AB make with CD, upon one side of it, the angles CBA, ABD : these shall either be two right angles, or shall together be equal to two right angles. For...
Σελίδα 60 - If the vertical angle of a triangle be bisected by a straight line which also cuts the base, the rectangle contained by the sides of the triangle is equal to the rectangle contained by the segments of the base, together with the square on the straight line which bisects the angle.
Σελίδα 22 - IF two triangles have two sides of the one equal to two sides of the...
Σελίδα vi - The sluggard is wiser in his own conceit than seven men that can render a reason.
Σελίδα 54 - If there be imo straight lines, one of which is divided into any number of parts; the rectangle contained by the two straight lines, is equal to the rectangles contained by the undivided line, and the several parts of the divided line.
