Page 73 - The angle which an arc of a circle subtends at the centre is double that which it subtends at any point on the remaining part of the circumference. Angles in the same segment of a circle are equal; and. if the line joining two points subtends equal angles at two other points on the same side of it, the four points lie on a circle. The angle in a semicircle is a right angle ; the angle in a segment greater than a semicircle is less than a right angle ; and the angle in a segment less than a semicircle...

Page 70 - If two triangles have two angles of the one equal to two angles of the other, each to each, and one side equal to one side, viz.

Page 74 - 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 71 - ... points. The locus of a point which is equidistant from two intersecting straight lines consists of the pair of straight lines which bisect the angles between the two given lines.

Page 71 - If there are three or more parallel straight lines, and the intercepts 'made by them on any straight line that cuts them are equal, then the corresponding intercepts on any other straight line that cuts them are also equal.

Page 72 - ... subtending the obtuse angle, is greater than the squares on the sides containing the obtuse angle, by twice the rectangle contained by the side upon which, when produced, the perpendicular falls, and the straight line intercepted without the triangle between the perpendicular and the obtuse angle, Let ABC be an obtuse-angled triangle, having the obtuse angle ACB; and from the point A, let AD be drawn perpendicular to BC produced.

Page 666 - ... and shall be taken, construed, and adjudged in the most favourable and beneficial sense, for the best advantage of...

Page 72 - In obtuse-angled triangles, if a perpendicular be drawn from either of the acute angles to the opposite side produced, the square on the side subtending the obtuse angle, is greater than the squares on the sides containing the obtuse angle, by twice the rectangle contained by the side upon which...
