Page 59 - The volume of a triangular prism is equal to the product of its base by its altitude.

Page 40 - A Cylindrical surface is a curved surface generated by a moving straight line which continually touches a given curve and in all its positions is parallel to a given fixed straight line not in the plane of the curve.
