Side 8 - 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 10 - A diameter of a circle is a straight line drawn through the centre, and terminated both ways by the circumference.

Side 9 - CHG; and they are adjacent angles; but when a straight line standing on another straight line makes the adjacent angles equal to one another...

Side 9 - A circle is 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.

Side 13 - Of four-sided figures, a SQUARE is that which has all its sides equal, and all its angles right angles.

Side 9 - When a straight line standing on another straight line makes the adjacent 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.

Side 14 - Parallel straight lines are such as are in the same plane, and which being produced ever so far both ways, do not meet.

Side 8 - 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.

Side 13 - A rhomboid, is that which has its opposite sides equal to one another, but all its sides are not equal, nor its angles right angles.

Side 8 - 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.
