...similar, when they have two angles in each respectivety equal. Second. Two polygons are similar, when both may be divided into the same number of triangles, similar each to each, and similarly placed. But to prevent this latter definition itself from including any superfluous conditions, ftie... ## Elements of Arithmetic, Algebra, and Geometry
