  • A square is distinguished from other polygons by being four-sided, equilateral, and equiangular.

    Determinates vs. Determinables

  • In well-formed subjects, the anterior space is equiangular, the base being equal to each side; but according as the tuberosities approach the median line, the base becomes narrowed, and the triangle is thereby rendered acute.

  • Thus it is as true to say that 'All equiangular triangles are equilateral' as that 'All equilateral triangles are equiangular.'

    Deductive Logic

  • For instance, in the particular case of equilateral triangles it is true to say, not only that 'all equilateral triangles are equiangular,' but also that 'all equiangular triangles are equilateral.'

    Deductive Logic

  • We may have a division consisting of mutually exclusive members, which yet involves a mixture of different bases, e.g. if we were to divide triangle into scalene, isosceles and equiangular.

    Deductive Logic

  • For example, if all the equilateral triangles are all the equiangular, we know at once that all non-equilateral triangles are also non-equiangular.

    Deductive Logic

  • Thus all equilateral triangles are equiangular triangles; but in one case they are named from the equality of their angles, and in the other from the equality of their sides.

    Logic Deductive and Inductive

  • The proof of Euclid's axiom looked for in the properties of the equiangular spiral_ (London, 1840), which went through four editions, and the _Theory of Parallels.
