Page 2 - A circle is a plane figure contained by one line, which is called the circumference, and is such that all straight lines drawn from a certain point within the figure to the circumference, are equal to one another : XVI.
Page 4 - Let it be granted that a straight line may be drawn from any one point to any other point.
Page 21 - That, if a straight line falling on two straight lines make the interior angles on the same side less than two right angles, the two straight lines, if produced indefinitely, meet on that side on which are the angles less than the two right angles.
Page 29 - To describe a parallelogram that shall be equal to a given triangle, and have one of its angles equal to a given rectilineal angle.
Page 38 - 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 of...
Page 15 - If, from the ends of the side of a triangle, there be drawn two straight lines to a point within the triangle, these shall be less than, the other two sides of the triangle, but shall contain a greater angle. Let...
Page 13 - If one side of a triangle be produced, the exterior angle is greater than either of the interior opposite angles.
Page 4 - If a straight line meet two straight lines, so as to make the two interior angles on the same side of it taken together less than two right angles...
