Page 90 - The projection of a point on a line is the foot of the perpendicular from the point to the line. Thus A
Page 24 - The third side is called the base of the isosceles triangle, and the equal sides are called the sides. A triangle which has no two sides equal is called a scalene triangle. The distance from one point to another is the length of the straight line-segment joining them. The distance from a point to a line is the length of the perpendicular from that point to that line. That this perpendicular is unique will be proved later. This is the meaning of the word distance in plane geometry. In speaking of...
Page 295 - The sum of the angles of a spherical triangle is greater than two and less than six right angles ; that is, greater than 180 and less than 540. (gr). If A'B'C' is the polar triangle of ABC...
Page 74 - Prove analytically that the perpendiculars from the vertices of a triangle to the opposite sides meet in a point.
Page 107 - XLI. 2. The perpendicular bisector of a chord passes through the center of the circle and bisects the subtended arcs.
Page 37 - If two triangles have two sides of the one respectively equal to two sides of the other, and the contained angles supplemental, the two triangles are equal.
Page 225 - Theorem. If each of two intersecting planes is perpendicular to a third plane, their line of intersection is also perpendicular to that plane. Given two planes, Q, R, intersecting in OP, and each perpendicular to plane M. To prove that OP _L M.
Page 265 - A Plane Surface, or a Plane, is a surface in which if any two points are taken, the straight line which joins these points will lie wholly in the surface.
Page 159 - If two triangles have one angle of the one equal to one angle of the other and the sides about these equal angles proportional, the triangles are similar.
Page 94 - To construct a parallelogram equal to a given triangle and having one of its angles equal to a given angle.
