Page 25 - The altitude of the pyramid is the perpendicular distance from the vertex to the base. A pyramid is called triangular, quadrangular, etc., according to the shape of the base.

Page 49 - F'. These points will be the foci, for DF + DF' = 2CV = VV. IV. The hyperbola, which may be generated by moving a point in the same plane, so that the difference of its distances from two fixed points shall be equal to a given line. The two fixed points are the foci. The curve may be constructed by points, thus : Let F and F', Fig. 36, be the two foci, and VV the given line, so placed that FV = F'V. With F' as a centre, and any radius greater than F'V, as F'O, describe an arc.
