Page 274 - If two planes are perpendicular to each other, a straight line drawn in one of them, perpendicular to their intersection, is perpendicular to the other.

Page 360 - A sphere is a solid bounded by a surface all points of which are equally distant from a point within called the centre.

Page 383 - Hence the two last are right angles ; hence the arc drawn from the vertex of an isosceles spherical triangle to the middle of the base, is at right angles to the base, and bisects the vertical angle.

Page 250 - The areas of two triangles which have an angle of the one equal to an angle of the other are to each other as the products of the sides including the equal angles. To prove that Proof. A Let the triangles ABC and ADE have the common angle A. A ABC -AB X AC Now and A ADE AD X AE Draw BE.

Page 285 - The sum of the face angles of any convex polyhedral angle is less than four right angles.

Page 246 - 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 245 - The straight line joining the middle points of two sides of a triangle is parallel to the third side and equal to half of it 46 INTERCEPTS BY PARALLEL LINES.

Page 254 - If a straight line is perpendicular to each of two other straight lines at their point of intersection, it is perpendicular to the plane of the two lines.

Page 295 - An oblique prism is equivalent to a right prism whose base is equal to a right section of the oblique prism, and whose altitude is equal to a lateral edge of the oblique prism. r Let FI be a right section of the oblique prism AD', and PI" a right prism whose lateral edges are equal to the lateral edges of AD'.

Page 370 - A spherical angle is measured by the arc of the great circle described from its vertex as a pole and included between its sides (produced if necessary). Let AB, AC be arcs of great circles intersecting at A; AB...
