Page 6 - 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...

Page 90 - The sum of the squares of two sides of a triangle is equal to twice the square of half the third side increased by twice the square of the median upon that side.

Page 121 - The square constructed upon the difference of two straight lines is equivalent to the sum of the squares constructed upon these two lines, diminished by twice the rectangle of these lines. Let AB and AC be the two straight lines, and BC their difference.
