Page 37 - 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 103 - If two triangles have two angles of the one equal to two angles of the other, each to each, and also one side of the one equal to the corresponding side of the other, the triangles are congruent.
Page 95 - Each side of a spherical triangle is less than the sum of the other two sides.
Page 172 - If two planes are perpendicular to each other, a straight line drawn in one of them, perpendicular to their common section, will be perpendicular to the other plane.
Page 121 - Through a given point to draw a straight line parallel to a given straight line, Let A be the given point, and BC the given straight line : it is required to draw through the point A a straight line parallel to BC.

Page 33 - C' (89) (90) (91) (92) (93) 112. In any plane triangle, the sum of any two sides is to their difference as the tangent of half the sum of the opposite angles is to the tangent of half their difference.
Page 19 - In an isosceles triangle, the angles opposite the equal sides are equal.
Page 94 - In any quadrilateral the sum of the squares of the sides is equivalent to the sum of the squares of the diagonals, plus four times the square of the straight line that joins the middle points of the diagonals.
Page 102 - The areas of two triangles which have an angle of the one equal to an angle of the other are to each other as the products of the sides including the equal angles. A D A' Hyp. In triangles ABC and A'B'C', To prove AABC A A'B'C' A'B' x A'C ' Proof. Draw the altitudes BD and B'D'.
