Page 124 - When you have proved that the three angles of every triangle are equal to two right angles...
Page 221 - All the interior angles of any rectilineal figure, together with four right angles, are equal to twice as many right angles as the figure has sides.
Page 285 - EG, let fall from a point in the circumference upon the diameter, is a mean proportional between the two segments of the diameter DS, EF (p.
Page 284 - IN a right-angled triangle, if a perpendicular be drawn from the right angle to the base, the triangles on each side of it are similar to the whole triangle, and to one another.
Page 186 - From this it is manifest, that if one angle of a triangle be equal to the other two, it is a right angle, because the angle adjacent to it is equal to the same two; and when the adjacent angles are equal, they are right angles.
Page 248 - To express that the ratio of A to B is equal to the ratio of C to D, we write the quantities thus : A : B : : C : D; and read, A is to B as C to D.
Page 161 - In any triangle, if a line be drawn from the vertex at right angles to the base; the difference of the squares of the sides is equal to the difference of the squares of the segments of the base.
Page 160 - In any isosceles triangle, the square of one of the equal sides is equal to the square of any straight line drawn from the vertex to the base plus the product of the segments of the base.
Page 250 - Ratios that are the same to the same ratio, are the same to one another. Let A be to B as C is to D ; and as C to D, so let E be to F.
Page 124 - Angles, taken together, is equal to Twice as many Right Angles, wanting four, as the Figure has Sides.
