Side 320 - If a straight line touch a circle, and from the point of contact a chord be drawn, the angles which this chord makes with the tangent are equal to the angles in the alternate segments.

Side 405 - In any plane triangle, the sum of any two sides is to their difference as the tangent of half the sum of the opposite angles is to the tangent of half their difference.

Side 287 - 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 66 - If four magnitudes are proportional, the sum of the first and second is to their difference as the sum of the third and fourth is to their difference.

Side 272 - But things which are equal to the same are equal to one another (Ax.

Side 267 - Parallel straight lines are such as are in the same plane, and which being produced ever so far both ways, do not meet.

Side 263 - A plane rectilineal angle is the inclination of two straight lines to one another, which meet together, but are not in the same straight line.

Side 281 - If two triangles have two angles of the one equal to two angles of the other, each to each, and also one side of the one equal to the corresponding side of the other, the triangles are congruent.

Side 294 - If a straight line be bisected, and produced to any point ; the rectangle contained by the whole line thus produced, and the part of it produced, together with the square of half the line bisected, is equal to the square of the straight line which is made up of the half and the part produced.

Side 190 - Take the first term from the second, the second from the third, the third from the fourth, &c. and the remainders will form a new series, called the first order of
