Side 299 - Thus the proposition, that the sum of the three angles of a triangle is equal to two right angles, (Euc.
Side 186 - When of the equimultiples of four magnitudes (taken as in the fifth definition) the multiple of the first is greater than that of the second, but the multiple of the third is not greater than the multiple of the fourth ; then the first is said to have to the second a greater ratio than the third magnitude has to the fourth...
Side 9 - LET it be granted that a straight line may be drawn from any one point to any other point.
Side 104 - To divide a given straight line into two parts, so that the rectangle contained by the whole and one of the parts, shall be equal to the square on the other part.
Side 124 - The diameter is the greatest straight line in a circle; and, of all others, that which is nearer to the centre is always greater than one more remote; and the greater is nearer to the centre than the less. Let ABCD be a circle, of which...
Side 230 - If from any angle of a triangle, a straight line be drawn perpendicular to the base ; the rectangle contained by the sides of the triangle is equal to the rectangle contained by the perpendicular and the diameter of the circle described about the triangle.
Side 29 - Again ; the mathematical postulate, that " things which are equal to the same are equal to one another," is similar to the form of the syllogism in logic, which unites things agreeing in the middle term.
Side 63 - To a given straight line to apply a parallelogram, which shall be equal to a given triangle, and have one of its angles equal to a given rectilineal angle.
Side 128 - The diagonals of a quadrilateral intersect at right angles. Prove that the sum of the squares on one pair of opposite sides is equal to the sum of the squares on the other pair.
Side 22 - ACB, DB is equal to AC, and BC common to both ; the two sides DB, BC, are equal to the two AC, CB, each to each, and the angle DBC is equal to the angle ACB : therefore, the base DC is equal to the base AB, and the triangle DBC (Mr. Southey) is equal to the triangle ACB, the less to the greater, which is absurd,
