...each other. The side AC, opposite the right angle, is called the hypothenuse. It is shown by Geometry, **that the square of the hypothenuse is equal to the sum of the** squares of the other two sides. It follows that the difference between the square of the hypothenuse... | |

...truths of exact science ; as the well-known propositions of geometry, that, in a right-angled triangle, **the square of the hypothenuse is equal to the sum of the** squares of the opposite sides ; that the angle at the centre of a circle is double the angle at the... | |

...29, and raise a perpendicular BC = 17. Join AB; apply it to the scale, and it will be found 33.6. For **the square of the hypothenuse is equal to the sum of the** squares of the base and perpendicular. It- is required to find the diameter of a copper, that, being... | |
