Side 222 - If two triangles have one angle of the one equal to one angle of the other and the sides about these equal angles proportional, the triangles are similar.
Side 34 - From half the sum of the three sides subtract each side separately. Multiply the half sum and the three remainders together, and extract the square root of the product.
Side 151 - Find the locus of a point the sum of the squares of whose distances from two given points is constant.
Side 109 - COR. 2. The volume of any truncated triangular prism is equal to the product of its right section by one third the sum of its lateral edges.
Side 231 - ... the successive steps from premise to conclusion.

Side 20 - The perimeters of regular polygons of the same number of sides have the same ratio as their radii or as their apothems. ADB A' D' B' Hyp. P and P' are the perimeters of two regular polygons having the radii OA and O'A', and the apothems OD and O'D', respectively. To prove P:P' = OA: O'A
