Page 93 - Equiangular parallelograms have to one another the ratio which is compounded of the ratios of their sides. Let AC, CF be equiangular parallelograms, having the angle BCD equal to the angle ECG ; the...
Page 78 - ... viz. as A is to B, fo is E to F, and B to C as D to E ; and if the firft A be greater than the third C, then the fourth D will be greater than the fixth F ; if equal, equal ; and, if lefs, lefs.
Page 88 - 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 99 - BAC was proved to be equal to ACD : Therefore the whole angle ACE is equal to the two angles ABC, BAC...
Page 19 - From this it is manifest that if one angle of a triangle be equal to the other two it is a right angle, because the angle adjacent to it is equal to the same two ; (i.
Page 75 - Let AB be the fame multiple of C, that DE is of F : C is to F, as AB to DE. Becaufe AB is the fame multiple of C that DE is of F ; there are as many magnitudes in AB equal to C, as there are in DE equal...
Page 88 - ... reciprocally proportional, are equal to one another. Let AB, BC be equal parallelograms which have the angles at B equal, and let the sides DB, BE be placed in the same straight line ; wherefore also FB, BG are in one straight line (2.
Page 99 - BGC: for the same reason, whatever multiple the circumference EN is of the circumference EF, the same multiple is the angle EHN of the angle EHF: and if the circumference BL be equal to the circumference EN, the angle BGL is also equal to the angle EHN ; (in.
Page 106 - ... but BD, BE, which are in that plane, do each of them meet AB ; therefore each of the angles ABD, ABE is a right angle ; for the same reason, each of the angles CDB, CDE is a right angle: and because AB is equal to DE, and BD...
Page 73 - RATIOS that are the same to the same ratio, are the same to one another. Let A be to B as C is to D ; and as C to D, so let E be to F ; A is to B, as E to F.
