**THEOREM**. Conversely , if two angles of a triangle are equal , the sides opposite them are also equal , and the triangle is isosceles . Let the angle ABC be equal to the angle ACB ; then will the side AC be equal to the side AB . Page 22

**THEOREM**. From a given point , without a straight line , only one perpendicular can be drawn to that line . Let A be the point , and DE the given line . A Let us suppose that we can draw two perpendiculars , AB , AC . Page 24
