Page 35 - The sum of two sides of a triangle is greater than the third side, and their difference is less than the third side.

Page 152 - If two triangles have an angle of the one equal to an angle of the other, and the including sides proportional, they are similar. In the triangles ABC and A'B'C', let ZA = Z A', and let AB : A'B' = AC : A'C'. To prove that the A ABC and A'B'C

Page 68 - If two triangles have two sides of the one equal respectively to two sides of the other, but the included angle of the first greater than the included angle of the second, then the third side of the first is greater than the third side of the second. Given A ABC and A'B'C...

Page 193 - The areas of two triangles which have an angle of the one equal to an angle of the other are to each other as the products of the sides including the equal angles. To prove that Proof. A Let the triangles ABC and ADE have the common angle A. A ABC -AB X AC Now and A ADE AD X AE Draw BE.
