Page 144 - If the product of two quantities is equal to the product of two others, one pair may be made the extremes, and the other pair the means, of a proportion.

Page 32 - The sum of two sides of a triangle is greater than the third side, and their difference is less than the third side.

Page 4 - An angle is said to be included by its sides. An angle is bisected by a line drawn through the vertex and dividing the angle into two equal angles. TRIANGLES 23. A triangle is a portion of a plane bounded by three straight lines. These lines are the sides. The vertices of a triangle are the three points at which the sides intersect. The angles of a triangle are the three angles at the three vertices. Each side of a triangle has two angles adjoining it. The symbol for triangle is "A".
