Page 93 - Two triangles are congruent if two sides and the included angle of one are equal respectively to two sides and the included angle of the other.

Page 93 - If two planes are perpendicular to each other, a straight line drawn in one of them, perpendicular to their intersection, is perpendicular to the other.

Page 83 - A straight line is perpendicular to a plane when it is perpendicular to every straight line drawn in the plane through its foot; that is, through the point in which it meets the plane.

Page 87 - If two angles not in the same plane have their sides parallel and extending in the same direction, they are equal, and their planes are parallel. Given ABAC and B'A'C" in planes MN and PQ, respectively, with AB and AC II respectively to A'B' and AC', and extending in the same direction. To Prove Z BAC = Z B'A'C', and MN II PQ. Proof. Lay off AB = A'B' and AC = A'C', and draw lines AA, BB', CC', BC, and B'C'.
