Page 148 - If two chords intersect within a circle, the product of the segments of one is equal to the product of the segments of the other.

Page 150 - If, from a point without a circle, a tangent and a secant be drawn, the tangent is the mean proportional between the secant and its external segment.

Page 180 - Two triangles having an angle of the one equal to an angle of the other are to each other as the products of the sides including the equal angles.
