EUCLID. Capital letters, not numbers, must be used in the diagrams.

Not more than ten questions to be answered. 1. Give Euclid's definitions of a plane rectilineal angle, and of a triangle. Prove that if two triangles have two sides of the one equal to two sides of the other, each to each, and have also the angles contained by those sides equal to one another, they shall also have their bases or third sides equal; and the two triangles shall be equal, and their other angles shall be equal, each to each, namely, those to which the equal sides are opposite.

2. When is one straight line said to be perpendicular to another P Draw a straight line perpendicular to a given straight line of an unlimited length, from a given point without it. Why must the given straight line be of unlimited length ?

3. 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.

Why is it made a condition, in working this problem, that any two of the given lines must be greater than the third ?

4. What are parallel straight lines ?

The straight lines which join the extremities of two equal and parallel straight lines towards the same parts, are also themselves equal and parallel.

5. What is a parallelogram ? Describe a parallelogram which shall be equal to a given triangle, and have one of its angles equal to a given rectilineal triangle.

6. In any right-angled triangle, the square which is described on the side subtending the right angle is equal to the squares described on the sides which contain the right angle.
