Page 172 - If squares are constructed on the two sides, and also on the hypotenuse of a right-angled triangle, then the sum of the squares on the sides is equal to the square on the hypotenuse.
Page 279 - Axioms (1) If equal numbers are added to equal numbers, the sums are equal.
Page 456 - The logarithm of any power of a number is equal to the logarithm of the number multiplied by the exponent of the power.
Page 238 - In any proportion, the product of the means equals the product of the extremes.
Page 423 - The weight of a body above the earth's surface varies inversely as the square of its distance from the earth's center. If an object weighs 2000 pounds at the earth's surface, what would be its weight if it were 12,000 miles above the center of the earth, the radius of the earth being 4000 miles ?

If a, b, c, x are proportional, x is called the fourth proportional to a, b, c. If a, x, x, b are proportional, x is called a mean proportional to a and b, and ba third proportional to a and x. 173. If four numbers are proportional when taken in a given order, there are other orders in which they are also proportional. Eg If a, 6, c, d are proportional in...
