...thought of the past. If Euclid were alive to-day (and I dare say he is) he would not say, " The angles **at the base of an isosceles triangle are equal to one another."** He would say, "To me (a very frail and fallible being, remember) it does somehow seem that these two... | |

...Euclid in itself is not of much practical use — no one wants to prove in everyday life that the angles **at the base of an isosceles triangle are equal to one another** or that the three angles of a triangle are equal to two right angles, but you learn Euclid in order... | |

...according to Euclid's description in the proof. Proposition 5: The angles opposite the equal sides **of an isosceles triangle are equal to one another; and, if the equal sides** are extended further, the angles made with the third side will be equal. Proof: Let ABC be an isosceles... | |
