Página 23 - A circle is a plane figure contained by one line, which is called the circumference, and is such that all straight lines drawn from a certain point within the figure to the circumference, are equal to one another.

Página 26 - A segment of a circle is the figure contained by a straight line and the circumference it cuts off.

Página 29 - When a straight line standing on another straight line, makes the adjacent angles equal to one another, each of these angles is called a right angle ; and the straight line which stands on the other is called a perpendicular to it.

Página 21 - A plane rectilineal angle is the inclination of two straight lines to one another, which meet together, but are not in the same straight line.

Página 51 - PROB. from a given point to draw a straight line equal to a given straight line. Let A be the given point, and BC the given straight line : it is required to draw from the point A a straight line equal to BC.

Página 51 - Let BAC be the given rectilineal angle, it is required to bisect it. Take any point D in AB, and from AC cut (i.

Página 41 - all right angles (for example) are equal to one another ; " that " when one straight line falling on two other straight lines makes the two interior angles on the same side less than two right angles, these two straight lines, if produced, shall meet on the side, where are the two angles less than two right angles ; " are manifestly principles which bear no analogy to such barren truisms as these, " Things that are equal to one and the same thing are equal to one another.
