Σελίδα 55 - If two triangles have two sides of the one equal to two sides of the...
Σελίδα 71 - 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.
Σελίδα 11 - ... shall be equal to three given straight lines, but any two whatever of these must be greater than the third.
Σελίδα 12 - In any right-angled triangle, the square which is described upon the side subtending the right angle, is equal to the squares described upon the sides which contain the right angle.
Σελίδα 13 - The angle at the centre of a circle is double of the angle at the circumference upon the same base, that is, upon the same part of the circumference.
Σελίδα 15 - Similar triangles are to one another in the duplicate ratio of their homologous sides.
Σελίδα 13 - BAC is cut off from the given circle ABC containing an angle equal to the given angle D : Which was to be done. PROP. XXXV. THEOR. If two straight lines within a circle cut one another, the rectangle contained by the segments of one of them is equal to the rectangle contained by the segments of the other.
Σελίδα 62 - In every triangle, the square of the side subtending either of the acute angles, is less than the squares of the sides containing that angle, by twice the rectangle contained by either of these sides, and the straight line intercepted between the acute angle and the perpendicular let fall upon it from the opposite angle.
Σελίδα 13 - PROP. X. THEOR. IF a straight line be bisected, and produced to any point, the square of the whole line thus produced, and the square of the part of it produced, are together double of the square of half the line bisected, and of the square of the line made up of the half and the part produced.
Σελίδα 70 - And because the angle ABC is equal to the angle BCD, and the angle CBD to the angle ACB, therefore the whole angle ABD is equal to the whole angle ACD • (ax.
