Bisect a given rectilineal angle. 4. (1) If two triangles have two angles of the one equal to two angles of the other, each to each, and one side equal to one side, viz., either the sides adjacent to the equal angles in each or the sides opposite to them; then shall the other sides be equal each to each. (2) Explain clearly why it is necessary in the enunciation of this proposition to add the words, "viz. : either the sides adjacent to the equal angles in each or the sides opposite to them."
