When a straight line standing on ur

other straight line makes the adjacent angles equal to one another, oach of the angles is called a right

angle; and the straight line which stands on the other, is called a perpendicular to it.

XI. An obtuse angle is that which is greater than a right angle.

XII. An acute angle is that which is less than a right angle.

XIII. A term or boundary is the extremity of any thing.

XIV. A figure is that which is enclosed by one or more boundaries.

XV. Acircleis a plane figure contained by one line, which is called the circumference, and is such, that all straight lines drawn from a certain point within the figure to the circumference, are equal to one another.

XVI. And this point is called the centre of the circle.

XVII. A diameter of a circle is a straight line drawn

through the centre, and terminated both ways by the circumference,

VIII. A plane angle is the inclination of two lines to

one another in a plane, which meet together, but are not in the same direction.

IX.
A plane rectilineal A

angle is the in-
clination of two
straight lines to B

one another, which meet together, but are
not in the same straight line.

N.B. When several angles are at one point B, any one of them is expressed by three letters, of which the letter that is at the vertex of the angle, that is, at the point in which the straight lines that contain the angle meet one another, is put between the other two letters, and one of these two is somewhere upon one of those straight lines, and the other upon the other line: Thus, the angle which is contained by the straight lines AB, CB, is named the angle ABC, or CBA; and that which is contained by DB, CB, is called the angle DBC or CBD; but if there be only one angle at a point, it may be expressed by a letter placed at that point, as the angle at E.

X.
When a straight line standing on an-

other straight line makes the ad-
jacent angles equal to one another,
each of the angles is called a right

angle; and the straight line which stands on the other, is called a perpendicular to it.

XI. An obtuse angle is that which is greater than a right angle.

XII. An acute angle is that which is less than a right angle.

XIII. A term or boundary is the extremity of any

thing.

XIV. A figure is that which is enclosed by one or more boundaries.

XV. Acircleis a plane figure contained

by one line, which is called the circumference, and is such, that all straight lines drawn from a certain point within the figure to the circumference, are equal to one another.

XVI. And this point is called the centre of the circle.

XVII. A diameter of a circle is a straight line drawn

through the centre, and terminated both ways by the circumference,

XVIII. A semicircle is the figure contained by a diameter and the part of the circumference cut off by the diameter.

XIX. A segment of a circle is the figure contained by

a straight line, and the circumference it cuts off.

XX. Rectilineal figures are those which are contained by straight lines.

XXI. Trilateral figures, or triangles, by three straight lines.

XXII. Quadrilateral, by four straight lines.

XXIII. Multilateral figures, or polygons, by more than four straight lines.

XXIV.
Of three-sided figures, an equilate-

ral triangle is that which has three
equal sides.

XXV. An isosceles triangle is that which has

only two sides equal.
