Every straight line , CA , CE , CD , drawn from the centre to the circum- ference , is called a radius or semidiam- F E eter ; every line which , like AB ,

Every straight line , CA , CE , CD , drawn from the centre to the circum- ference , is called a radius or semidiam- F E eter ; every line which , like AB ,

**passes**through the centre , and is terminated on both sides by the circumference ... Page 45

All circles which have their centres on the right line AD , and which

All circles which have their centres on the right line AD , and which

**pass**through the point A , are tangent to each other . For , they have only the point A common , and it through the point A , AE be drawn perpendicular to AD ...### What people are saying - Write a review
