**Scholium**. The four angles , formed about a point by two straight lines which cut each other , are together equal to four right angles ; for the angles ACE , BCE , taken together , are equal to two right angles ; also the other angles ... Page 9

**Scholium**. It may be remarked , that equal angles are opposite to equal sides ; thus , the equal angles A and D are opposite to the equal sides B C and EF . THEOREM . 45. In an isosceles triangle , the angles opposite to the equal sides ... Page 10

**Scholium**. From the equality of the triangles ABD , ACD , it follows , that the angle BAD = DAC , and that the angle BDA = ADC ; therefore these two last are right angles . Hence a straight line , drawn from the vertex of an isosceles ... Page 11

**Scholium**. Through the same point C ( fig . 17 ) , in the Fig . 17 . line AB , it is also impossible to draw two perpendiculars to that line ; for , if CD and CE were these two perpendiculars , the angle DCB would be a right angle as ...### What people are saying - Write a review
