Page 16 - If, from the ends of the side of a triangle, there be drawn two straight lines to a point within the triangle, these shall be less than, the other two sides of the triangle, but shall contain a greater angle. Let...

Page 304 - Again ; the mathematical postulate, that " things which are equal to the same are equal to one another," is similar to the form of the syllogism in logic, which unites things agreeing in the middle term.

Page 4 - DL is equal to DG, and DA, DB, parts of them, are equal ; therefore the remainder AL is equal to the remainder (3. Ax.) BG : But it has been shewn that BC is equal to BG ; wherefore AL and BC are each of them equal to BG ; and things that are equal to the same are equal to one another ; therefore the straight line AL is equal to BC.
