Side 51 - If a straight line be divided into two equal parts, and also into two unequal parts; the rectangle contained by the unequal parts, together with the square of the line between the points of section, is equal to the square of half the line.

Side 81 - IF a straight line touch a circle, and from the point of contact a straight line be drawn at right angles to the touching line, the centre of the circle shall be in that line.

Side 14 - The angles at the base of an Isosceles triangle are equal to one another ; and if the equal sides be produced, the angles upon the other side of the base shall be equal.

Side 19 - The angles which one straight line makes with another upon one side uf it, are, either two right angles, or are together equal to two right angles. Let the straight line AB make with CD, upon one side of it the angles CBA, ABD ; these are either two right angles, or are together equal to two right angles. For, if the angle CBA be equal to ABD, each of them is a right angle (Def.

Side 52 - If a straight line be divided into any two parts, the squares on the whole line, and on one of the parts, are equal to twice the rectangle contained by the whole and that part, together with the square on the other part. Let the straight line AB be divided into any two parts in the point C. Then the squares on AB, BC shall be equal to twice the rectangle AB, BC, together with the square on A C.

Side 147 - If the vertical angle of a triangle be bisected by a straight line which also cute 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.

Side 242 - If two triangles have two angles of the one equal to two angles of the other, each to each, and one side equal to one side, viz.

Side 9 - 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.

Side 119 - Reciprocal figures, viz. triangles and parallelograms, " are such as have their sides about two of their " angles proportionals in such a manner, that a side

Side 72 - The straight line drawn at right angles to the diameter of a circle, from the extremity of it, falls without the circle...
