Page 84 - If a circle have any number of equal chords, what is the locus of their points of bisection? 21. If any point, not the center, be taken in a diameter of a circle, of all the chords which can pass through that point, that one is the least which is at right angles to the diameter. 22. If from any point there extend two lines tangent to a circumference, the angle contained by the tangents is double the angle contained by the line joining the points of contact and the radius extending to one of them....

Page 126 - Theorem. — Two parallelograms are equal when two adjacent sides and the included angle in the one, are respectively equal to those parts in the other.
