3. Draw a straight line at right angles to a given straight line, from a given point in the same.

4. Make a triangle of which the sides shall be equal to three given straight lines, any two of these being greater than the third.

5. Parallelograms upon the same base, and between the same parallels, are equal to one another.

6. To a given straight line apply a parallelogram which shall be equal to a given triangle, and have one of its angles equal to a given rectilineal angle.

7. If the square described upon one of the sides of a triangle be equal to the squares described upon the other two sides of it, the angle contained by these two sides is a right angle.

8. If a straight line be divided into any two parts, the square of the whole line is equal to the squares of the two parts, together with twice the rectangle contained by the parts.
