Página 3 - Let it be granted that a straight line may be drawn from any one point to any other point.
Página 68 - If a straight line drawn through the centre of a circle bisect a straight line in it which does not pass through the centre, it shall cut it at right angles : and if it cut it at right angles, it shall bisect it.
Página 45 - ABG ; (vi. 1.) therefore the triangle ABC has to the triangle ABG the duplicate ratio of that which BC has to EF: but the triangle ABG is equal to the triangle DEF; therefore also the triangle ABC has to the triangle DEF the duplicate ratio of that which BC has to EF. Therefore similar triangles, &c.
Página 15 - When a straight line set up on a straight line makes the adjacent angles equal to one another, each of the equal angles is right, and the straight line standing on the other is called a perpendicular to that on which it stands.
Página 86 - When you have proved that the three angles of every triangle are equal to two right angles...
Página 88 - EA : and because AD is equal to DC, and DE common to the triangles ADE, CDE, the two sides AD, DE are equal to the two CD, DE, each to each ; and the angle ADE is equal to the angle CDE, for each of them is a right angle ; therefore the base AE is equal (4.
Página 42 - If four straight lines be proportionals, the rectangle contained by the extremes is equal to the rectangle contained by the means ; And if the rectangle contained by the extremes be equal to the rectangle contained by the means, the four straight lines are proportionals. Let the four straight lines, AB, CD, E, F, be proportionals, viz.
Página 109 - Draw two diameters AC, BD of the circle ABCD, at right angles to one another; and through the points A, B. C, D, draw (17.
