Page 54 - If a straight line be bisected, and produced to any point, the square of the whole line thus produced, and the square of the part of it produced, are together double of the square of half the line bisected, and of the square of the line made up of the half and the part produced.

Page 76 - Upon the same straight line, and upon the same side of it, there cannot be two similar segments of circles, not coinciding with one another. If it be possible. let the two similar segments of circles, viz. ACB' ADB be upon the same side of the same straight line AB, not coinciding with one another.
