Page 2 - The sum of the three angles of any triangle is equal to two right angles, this is a Theorem, the truth of which is demonstrated by Geometry.

Page 298 - Proportion, when the ratio is the same between every two adjacent terms, viz. when the first is to the second, as the second to the third, as the third to the fourth, as the fourth to the fifth, and so on, all in the same common ratio.

Page 283 - In any triangle, the difference of the squares of the two sides w equal to the difference of the squares of the segments of the base, or of the two lines or distances included between the extremes of the base and the perpendicular.

Page 168 - When the index of the logarithm to be divided is negative, and does not exactly contain the divisor without some remainder, increase the index by such a number as will make it exactly divisible by the index, carrying the units borrowed, as so many tens, to the left-hand place of the decimal, and, then divide as in whole numbers. EXAMPLES. 1.

Page 292 - The angle formed by a tangent to a circle, and a chord drawn from the point of contact, is equal to the angle in the alternate segment.

Page 345 - The Circumference of every circle is supposed to be divided into 360 equal parts, called Degrees ; and each degree into 60 Minutes, each minute into 60 Seconds, and so on. Hence a semicircle contains 180 degrees, and a quadrant 90 degrees. 58. The Measure of an angle is an arc of any circle contained between the two lines which form that angle, the angular point being the centre ; and it is estimated by the number of degrees contained in that arc.

Page 426 - BRICKLAYERS- WORK. — Brickwork is estimated at the rate of a brick and a half thick. So that, if a wall be more or less than this standard thickness, it must be reduced to it, as follows : — Multiply the superficial content of the wall by the number of half bricks in the thickness, and divide the product by 3. The...

Page 297 - Three quantities are said to be proportional when the ratio of the first to the second is equal to the ratio of the second to the third.
