Page 76 - The straight line joining the middle points of two sides of a triangle is parallel to the third side and equal to half of it 46 INTERCEPTS BY PARALLEL LINES.
Page 132 - If two triangles have two sides of 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.
Page 53 - Two triangles are congruent if two sides and the included angle of one are equal respectively to two sides and the included angle of the other. 2. Two triangles are congruent if two angles and the included side of one are equal respectively to two angles and the included side of the other.
Page 4 - PERIPHERY of a circle is its entire bounding line ; or it is a curved line, all points of which are equally distant from a point within called the center.
Page 72 - There are three important theorems in geometry stating the conditions under which two triangles are congruent: 1. Two triangles are congruent if two sides and the included angle of one are equal respectively to two sides and the included angle of the other.
Page 260 - S' denote the areas of two circles, R and R' their radii, and D and D' their diameters. Then, I . 5*1 = =»!. That is, the areas of two circles are to each other as the squares of their radii, or as the squares of their diameters.
Page 199 - In any triangle, the square of the side opposite an acute angle is equal to the sum of the squares of the other two sides, minus twice the product of one of these sides and the projection of the other side upon it.
Page 203 - In any quadrilateral the sum of the squares of the four sides is equal to the sum of the squares of the diagonals, plus four times the square of the line joining the middle points of the diagonals.
Page 47 - In a right triangle, the side opposite the right angle is called the hypotenuse and is the longest side.
