... if the angle D were less than A , it would

... if the angle D were less than A , it would

**follow**, that the side EF must be less than BC : but EF is equal to BC , by hypothesis ; therefore , the angle D can neither be greater nor less than A ; therefore it must be equal to it . Page 21

For , if the angle C < B , it

For , if the angle C < B , it

**follows**, from what has just been proved , that AB < AC ; which is contrary to the hypothesis . If the angle C - B , then the side AB = AC ( Prop . XII . ) ; which is also contrary to the supposition . Page 32

... is equal to the side DC , opposite the equal angle DBC ; and the third sides AD , BC , are equal : hence the op- posite sides of a parallelogram are equal . - Again , since the triangles are equal , it

In the case of the rhombus , the sides AB , BC , being equal , the triangles AEB , EBC , have all the sides of the one equal to the corresponding sides of the other , and are therefore equal : whence it

Now , since the unit of measure may be made as small as we please , it

Now , since the unit of measure may be made as small as we please , it

**follows**, that magnitudes may be rep- resented by numbers to any degree of exactness , or they will differ from their numerical representatives by less than any ...### What people are saying - Write a review
