Page 20 - The circumference of every circle is supposed to' be divided into 360 equal parts, called degrees ; each degree into 60 minutes, and each minute into 60 seconds. Degrees, minutes, and seconds are designated by the characters , ', ". Thus 23 14' 35" is read 23 degrees, 14 minutes, and 35 seconds.
Page 148 - The radius of a sphere, is a straight line drawn from the center to any point of the surface.
Page 18 - BC common to the two triangles, which is adjacent to their equal angles ; therefore their other sides shall be equal, each to each, and the third angle of the one to the third angle of the other, (26.
Page 34 - ... therefore the angle ACB is equal to the angle CBD. And because the straight line BC meets the two straight lines AC, BD, and makes the alternate angles ACB, CBD equal to one another, AC is parallel to BD.
Page 32 - All the interior angles of any rectilineal figure, together with four right angles, are equal to twice as many right angles as the figure has sides.
Page 159 - If two triangles have two angles and the included side of the one, equal to two angles and the included side of the other, each to each, the two triangles will be equal.
