Page 38 - Prove it. 6.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 42 - IF from any point without a circle two straight lines be drawn, one of which cuts the circle, and the other touches it ; the rectangle contained by the whole line which cuts the circle, and the part of it without the circle, shall be equal to the square of the line which touches it.
