Page 6 - Things which are equal to the same thing are equal to one another. 2. If equals be added to equals, the wholes are equal. 3. If equals be taken from equals, the remainders are equal. 4. If equals be added to unequals, the wholes are unequal.

Page 86 - Three times the sum of the squares of the sides of a triangle is equal to four times the sum of the squares of the medians.

This operation is called convertendo. 396. When four quantities are proportionals, the sum of the first and second is to their difference as the sum of the third and fourth is to their difference.

Page 163 - The first of four magnitudes is said to have the same ratio to the second, which the third has to the fourth, when any equimultiples whatsoever of the first and third being taken, and any equimultiples whatsoever of the second and fourth ; if the multiple of the first be less than that of the second, the multiple of the third is also less than that of the fourth: or, if the multiple of the first be equal to that of the second, the multiple of the third is also equal to that of the fourth : or, if...

Page 108 - The sum of the squares on the sides of a parallelogram is equal to the sum of the squares on the diagonals.

Page 114 - If four quantities are in proportion, they will be in proportion by COMPOSITION; that is, the sum of the first and second, will be to the second, as the sum of the third and fourth, is to the fourth.

Page 66 - If a parallelogram and a triangle be on the same base and between the same parallels, the parallelogram shall be double of the triangle.

Page 84 - Thus, that the square of the hypothenuse of a right-angled triangle is equal to the sum of the squares of the other two sides, was an experimental discovery, or why did the discoverer sacrifice a hecatomb when he made out its proof ?
