Page 4 - To divide a given straight line into two parts, so that the rectangle contained by the whole and one of the parts, shall be equal to the square of the other part.

Page 6 - The angle at the centre of a circle is double of the angle at the circumference upon the same base, that is, upon the same part of the circumference.

Page 11 - AB is a diameter, and P any point in the circumference of a circle; AP and BP are joined and produced if necessary ; if from any point C of AB, a perpendicular be drawn to AB meeting AP and .BP in points D and E respectively, and the circumference of the circle in a point F, shew that CD is a third proportional of CE and CF.
