If two straight lines within a circle cut one another, the rectangle contained by the segments of one of them is equal to the rectangle contained by the segments of the other.
Page 62 - In every triangle, the square of the side subtending either of the acute angles, is less than the squares of the sides containing that angle, by twice the rectangle contained by either of these sides, and the straight line intercepted between the acute angle and the perpendicular let fall upon it from the opposite angle.
Page 13 - PROP. X. THEOR. IF a straight line be bisected, and produced to any point, the square of the whole line thus produced, and the square of the part of it produced, are together double of the square of half the line bisected, and of the square of the line made up of the half and the part produced.
Page 70 - And because the angle ABC is equal to the angle BCD, and the angle CBD to the angle ACB, therefore the whole angle ABD is equal to the whole angle ACD • (ax.
