Page 46 - If two triangles have two sides of the one equal respectively to two sides of the other, but the included angle of the first greater than the included angle of the second, then the third side of the first is greater than the third side of the second. Given A ABC and A'B'C ' with Proof STATEMENTS Apply A A'B'C ' to A ABC so that A'B

Page 148 - If two triangles have an angle of the one equal to an angle of the other, and the including sides proportional, they are similar. In the triangles ABC and A'B'C', let ZA = Z A', and let AB : A'B' = AC : A'C'. To prove that the A ABC and A'B'C' are similar. In this case we prove the A similar by proving them mutually equiangular. Proof. Place the A A'B'C...
