lines and angles. The 4 first are can be are
capable of increase & decrease of being compared with respect
to great & small can be said to be greater or less
or equal one than another or equal one to another.
with respect to angles it is otherwise the terms greater
less & equal have then a figurative metaphorical
sense acute & obtuse would be more proper to use
as not liable to be supposed to depend upon the length
of the lines or area of the space included.
similar would also be better than equal for the
same reason.
