Page 63 - PROP. VIII. THEOR. If a straight line be divided into any two parts, four times the rectangle contained by the whole line, and one of the parts, together with the square of the other part, is equal to the square of the straight line which is made up of the whole and that part.
Page 59 - Any two sides of a triangle are together greater than the third side.
Page 60 - IF a side of any triangle be produced, the exterior angle is equal to the two interior and opposite angles ; and the three interior angles of every triangle are equal to two right angles.
Page 63 - If a straight line be bisected and produced to any point, the rectangle contained by the whole line thus produced and the part of it produced, together •with the square on half the line bisected, is equal to the square on the straight line which is made up of the half and the part produced.
Page 58 - If, at a point in a straight line, two other straight lines, upon the opposite sides of it, make the adjacent angles together equal to two right angles, these two straight lines shall be in one and the same straight line.
Page 62 - In any right-angled triangle, the square which is described upon the side subtending the right angle, is equal to the squares described upon the sides which contain the right angle.
