Page 264 - If a straight line be bisected, and produced to any point ; the rectangle contained by the whole line thus produced, and the part of it produced, together with the square of half the line bisected, is equal to the square of the straight line which is made up of the half and the part produced.

Page 277 - II. Two magnitudes are said to be reciprocally proportional to two others, when one of the first is to one of the other magnitudes as the remaining one of the last two is to the remaining one of the first.

Page 280 - If two triangles have one angle of the one equal to one angle of the other and the sides about these equal angles proportional, the triangles are similar.
