Page 173 - 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 166 - 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 157 - If, from the ends of the side of a triangle, there be drawn two straight lines to a point within the triangle, these shall be less than, the other two sides of the triangle, but shall contain a greater angle. Let...
Page 158 - If the angle of a triangle be divided into two equal angles, by a straight line which also cuts the base ; the segments of the base shall have the same ratio which the other sides of the triangle have to one another...
Page 161 - 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. D c A' D' Hyp.

Page 167 - If the vertical angle of a triangle be 'bisected 'by a straight line which also cuts the base, the rectangle contained by the sides of the triangle is equal to the rectangle contained by the segments of the base, together with the square on the straight line which bisects the angle.
Page 172 - If two angles of a triangle be equal to one another, the sides also which subtend, or are opposite to, the equal angles, shall be equal to one another.
