BOOK I.

PROPOSITION I. PROBLEM.

On a given finite straight line, to describe an

equilateral triangle.

[blocks in formation]

From a given point, to draw a straight line equal

to a given finite straight line.

PROP. III. PROB.

From the greater of two given straight lines, to

cut off a part equal to the less.

PROP. IV. THEOREM.

If two triangles have two sides of the one re

spectively equal to two sides of the other, and the angles contained by those equal sides also equal; then their bases or third sides are also equal: and their remaining angles opposite to equal sides are respectively equal: and the triangles are equal in every respect.

AA

PROP. V. THEOR.

In an isosceles triangle the internal angles at

the base are equal; and when the equal sides are produced, the external angles at the base are also equal.

COROLLARY.-Hence it follows that every equilateral triangle is also equiangular.

PROP. VI. THEOR.

In any triangle if two angles are equal, the sides

opposite to them are also equal.
