Page 108 - In every triangle, the square on the side subtending an acute angle, is less than the squares on the sides containing that angle, by twice the rectangle contained by either of these sides, and the straight line intercepted between the perpendicular let fall on it from the opposite angle, and the acute angle. Let ABC be any triangle, and the angle at B an acute angle; and on BC one of the sides containing it, let fall the perpendicular...
