Page 121 - Wherefore, in equal circles &c. QED PROPOSITION B. THEOREM If the vertical angle of a triangle be bisected by a straight line which likewise cuts the base, the rectangle contained by the sides of the triangle is equal to the rectangle contained by the segments of the base, together with the square on the straight line which bisects the angle.

Page 10 - A'B'C', and applying the law of cosines, we have cos a' = cos b' cos c' + sin b' sin c' cos A'. Remembering the relations a' = 180° -A, b' = 180° - B, etc. (this expression becomes cos A = — cos B cos C + sin B sin C cos a.

Page 182 - If two straight lines cut one another within a circle, the rectangle contained by the segments of one of them, is equal to the rectangle contained by the segments of the other.

Page 78 - Equiangular parallelograms have to one another the ratio which is compounded of the ratios of their sides.

Page 182 - To make a triangle of which the sides shall be equal to three given straight lines, but any two whatever of these must be greater than the third (20.

Page 182 - 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 161 - All the interior angles of any rectilineal figure, together with four right angles, are equal to twice as many right angles as the figure has sides.

Page 182 - In right angled triangles the square on the side subtending the right angle is equal to the (sum of the) squares on the sides containing the right angle.

Page 152 - If two straight lines be cut by parallel planes, they shall be cut in the same ratio. Let the straight lines AB, CD be cut by the parallel planes GH, KL, MN, in the points A, E, B; C, F, D : As AE is to EB, so is CF to FD.
