FIRST PART OF THIS WORK.
1. PROVE Euc. I. 9, I. 11, and I. 12, without using I. 8.
2. If there be two unequal parallel straight lines, the two straight
lines, joining their extremities which are towards the same parts,
will meet if produced through the extremities of the shorter par-
3. The three straight lines drawn from a point within a triangle
to the angles, are together less than the perimeter, but greater than
4. The diagonals of a parallelogram divide it into four equal
5. If a quadrilateral be bisected by both diagonals, it is a paral-
6. Prove Euc. I. 32, by the construction of Euc. I. 16.
7. Given the perpendicular of an equilateral triangle, to con-
8. Given the diagonal of a square, to construct it.
9. Prove Euc. I. 17, without producing any side.
10. Prove the first and second parts of Euc. I. 28, independ-
ently of I. 27, and of one another: and from each, when proved, de-
rive I. 27, and the remaining part of I. 28.
11. Given the sum of the side and diagonal of a square; to con-
12. Given the difference of the side and diagonal of a square;
13. Given the sum of the diagonal and two sides of a square; to
14. Given the sum of the side and perpendicular of an equila-
teral triangle; to construct it.
15. Given the difference of the side and perpendicular of an equi-
lateral triangle; to construct it.
16. Prove Euc. I. 36, without joining BE, CH, by producing
BA, FE, and CD, GH till they meet. When will this fail, and
