Page 88 - 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.
Page 78 - F, equal to them in number, be taken two and two in the fame ratio, and if their analogy be perturbate, viz. as A is to B, fo is E to F, and B to C as D to E ; and if the firft A be greater than the third C, then the fourth D will be greater than the fixth F ; if equal, equal ; and, if lefs, lefs.
Page 99 - BAC was proved to be equal to ACD : Therefore the whole angle ACE is equal to the two angles ABC, BAC...
Page 4 - If a straight line meets two straight lines, so as to make the two interior angles on the same side of it taken together less than two right angles, these straight lines being continually produced, shall at length meet upon that side on which are the angles which are less than two right angles.
Page 56 - Let ABC be the given circle, and D the given straight line, not greater than the diameter of the circle. It is required to place in the circle ABC a straight line equal to D.
Page 15 - If two triangles have two angles of the one equal to two angles of the other, each to each, and one side equal to one side, viz.
Page 19 - From this it is manifest that if one angle of a triangle be equal to the other two it is a right angle, because the angle adjacent to it is equal to the same two ; (i.
Page 75 - Let AB be the fame multiple of C, that DE is of F : C is to F, as AB to DE. Becaufe AB is the fame multiple of C that DE is of F ; there are as many magnitudes in AB equal to C, as there are in...
Page 99 - BGC: for the same reason, whatever multiple the circumference EN is of the circumference EF, the same multiple is the angle EHN of the angle EHF: and if the circumference BL be equal to the circumference EN, the angle BGL is also equal to the angle EHN ; (in.
Page 88 - ... reciprocally proportional, are equal to one another. Let AB, BC be equal parallelograms which have the angles at B equal, and let the sides DB, BE be placed in the same straight line ; wherefore also FB, BG are in one straight line (2.
