...AB, is the centre. PROPOSITION XX. THEOREM. The angle (ACD) at the centre of a circle, is double of **the angle at the circumference, when they have the same part of the circumference for their base.** Firstly — Let either leg of the angle at the periphery pass through the centre ; and because in the... | |
