If every two of three plane angles be greater than the third, and if the

straight lines which contain them be all equal ; a triangle may be made of the straight lines (D F, GI & AC) which subtend those angles. Hypothesis.

Thesis. 1. Any two of the three given V a, b, c, A A may be made of the straight are > the third, as b ta>c, or at

lines GÍ, DF & AC, which subc>b, or b + c> a.

tend those V.
II. The sides HG, HI, DE, EF, AB &
BC' which contain those V, are equal.

The three given V a, b,& c are either equal, or unequal.
CASE I If the v a, b,& c be equal.

Because the sides which contain the V, are equal (Hyp. 2.)

1. The ADEF, GHI & A B C are equal.

P. 4. B. i. 2. Therefore D F=GI= A C. 3. Consequently, DF + AC >GI.

Ax.4. B. 1. 4. Wherefore a A may be made of those straight lines DF, AC & GI. P.22. B. 1.

CASE. II. If the given V a, b, & cbe unequal

Pof.i. B. 1. DEMONSTRATION. ECAUSE the two Va+care > V b (Hyp. 1.) & LB=HG

=BC=HI (Prep. 2. & Hyp. 2.) 1. The base L C will be > GI.

P.24. B. 1. But LC<LA +AC.

P.20. B. I. 2. Much more then Ġ I is <LA +AC.

But LA=DF (Prep. 1. & P. 4. B. 1). 3. Therefore GI is < DF + A C.

Ax. 1. B. 1. 4. Consequently, a Amay be made of the straight lines DF, AC&GI,

ECAUSE PO is I to the plane of the OLMN (Ref. 6.)

1. The APOL will be right angled in 0 (Ref. 5. & 8.)
