Example text

Proof. From the first of his three lemma-theorems, we know that the area of triangle ABC is the half-perimeter S times the radius of the inscribed circle, O P, that is Area = S · O P. From the third of the lemma-theorems we know that S · O P 2 = A R · B P · C Q. Multiplying both sides by S gives S 2 · O P 2 = S · A R · B P · C Q. 16 Geometry This is the square of the area, so Area = S · O P = S · A R · B P · C Q. Now, the second of Euler’s lemma-theorems tells us that A R = S − BC, B P = S − AC and C Q = S − AB.

The others were in Latin, though the second one, E713, has a short summary in French, which we quote below: This article, which will give pleasure to the small number of amateurs in indeterminate analysis, contains a very beautiful solution to the problem stated in the title. Here it is in just a few words. Let the sides of the desired triangle be 2a, 2b, 2c, and let the straight lines be drawn from their midpoints to the opposite angles, respectively f, g, h. Take as you please any two numbers q and r and find )2 −4 −9qq M = 5qq−rr and N = 5rr4rr .
