Side 110 - To describe an isosceles triangle, having each of the angles at the base double of the third angle.
Side 30 - If a straight line fall upon two parallel straight lines, it makes the alternate angles equal to one another ; and the exterior angle equal to the interior and opposite upon the same side ; and likewise the two interior angles upon the same side together equal to two right angles.
Side 334 - the first of four magnitudes is said to have the same ratio to the second which the third has to the fourth, when any...
Side 293 - Thus, for" example, he to whom the geometrical proposition, that the angles of a triangle are together equal to two right angles...
Side 88 - ... a circle. The angle in a semicircle is a right angle; the angle in a segment greater than a semicircle is less than a right angle; and the angle in a segment less than a semicircle is greater than a right angle. The opposite angles of any quadrilateral inscribed in a circle are supplementary; and the converse.
Side 295 - If a straight line meets two straight lines, so as to " make the two interior angles on the same side of it taken " together less than two right angles...
