Apply Lay your twig in such manner as to reach
from the center of one of these circles to the center of the others,
and press it down in its whole length till you have made
a mark reaching its whole length you will have one
boundary line of a right lined figure. Keeping one end
fixt at either of the central points move on the other end
till you have arrived at carried it to the point of intersection as above,
and press as before. You have another boundary line of the same rightlined
figure: keeping the other end fixt at the other central
point, namely at the central point of the secondly described
circle, move on the loose end, till you have carried it to
the point of intersection as before, and press as before
you have a third boundary of the same right figure,
and by this third boundary in conjunction with the two
first the whole content of it is inclosed: and you
have a figure with three boundary lines to it and no
more, and the whole of its extent of the figure inclosed
within these boundary lines. A figure surface of this sort is
called a triangular figure surface: and for shortness a triangle
But Now its three sides are all of them equal to one: for
they are all of them impressions made by the same
twig: the triangle is therefore an equalsided triangle:
or to designate it by a name by
which though derived from the Latin it has more commonly
be designated in English, an equilateral triangle.
