Page 60 - PERIPHERY of a circle is its entire bounding line ; or it is a curved line, all points of which are equally distant from a point within called the centre.

Page 277 - The volume of a triangular prism is equal to the product of its base and altitude. Let AE be the altitude of the triangular prism ABC-C'. To prove that volume ABC-C' = ABC x AE. Construct the parallelopiped ABCD-D' having its edges equal and parallel to AB, BC, and BB'.

Page 112 - If the product of two quantities is equal to the product of two others, one pair may be made the extremes, and the other pair the means, of a proportion. Let ad = ос.

Page 31 - If two triangles have two sides of one equal respectively to two sides of the other, but the included angle of the first greater than the included angle of the second, then the third side of the first is greater than the third side of the second.
