Euclid. 1. If a straight line be divided into two equal and also into two unequal parts, the squares of the two unequal parts are together double of the square of half the line and of the square of the line between the points of section. 2. If a point be taken within a circle, from which there fall more than two equal straight lines to the circumference, that point is the centre of the circle. |
