Page 43 - The square of the hypothenuse is equal to the sum of the squares of the other two sides ; as, 5033 402+302.

Page 3 - If two triangles have the three sides of the one equal to the three sides of the other, each to each, the triangles are congruent.

Page 4 - Hence a straight line drawn from the vertex of an isosceles triangle, to the middle of the base, is perpendicular to that base, and divides the vertical angle into two equal parts.

Page 16 - CIRCLE is a plane figure bounded by a curved line, all the points of which are equally distant from a point within called the centre; as the figure ADB E.

Page 58 - The perimeters of two regular polygons of the same number of sides, are to each other as their homologous sides, and their areas are to each other as the squares of those sides (Prop.
