Page 38 - It follows from § 259 that if through a fixed point without a circle a secant and a tangent be drawn, the tangent is a mean proportional between the whole secant and its external segment.

Page 36 - In any obtuse triangle, the square of the side opposite the obtuse angle is equal to the sum of the squares of the other two sides, increased by twice the product of one of these sides and the projection of the other side upon it. c Hyp. In A abc, p is the projection of b upon c, and the angle opposite a is obtuse. To prove a. = V + c2 + 2cp. Proof. a2 = K

Page 36 - Two triangles are congruent if the three sides of the one are equal, respectively, to the three sides of the other.
