Pàgina 93 - If a straight line be bisected and produced to any point, the square on the whole line thus produced, and the square on the part of it produced, are together double of the square on half the line bisected, and of the square on the line made up of the half and the part produced. Let the straight line AB be bisected in C, and produced to D ; The squares on AD and DB shall be together double of the squares on AC and CD. CONSTRUCTION. — From the point C draw CE at right angles to AB, and make it equal...
Pàgina 118 - Guido, with a burnt stick in his hand, demonstrating on the smooth paving-stones of the path, that the square on the hypotenuse of a right-angled triangle is equal to the sum of the squares on the other two sides.
Pàgina 145 - If a straight line touch a circle, and from the point of contact a straight line be drawn cutting the circle ; the angles which this line makes with the line touching the circle, shall be equal to the angles which are in the alternate segments of the circle.
Pàgina 88 - If a straight line be divided into two equal parts and also into two unequal parts, the rectangle contained by the unequal parts, together with the square on the line between the points of section, is equal to the square on half the line.

Pàgina 144 - The angle in a semicircle is a right angle ; the angle in a segment greater than a semicircle is less than a right angle ; and the angle in a segment less than a semicircle is greater than a right angle.
Pàgina 92 - If a straight line be divided into two equal, and also into two unequal parts, the squares on the two unequal parts are together double of the square on half the line and of the square on the line between the points of section. Let the straight line AB be divided into two equal parts...
