Theorem 1

As ye difference twixt ye base & cath (in rectang: triang:) is to ye greater side:: so is ye difference of ye segm of ye base; to ye greater segmnt of ye base & perpendicular.

Theorem 2.

As ye difference twixt ye base & cathetus to ye less side:: so ye diff of ye segmts of ye base to ye lesse segment of ye base & perpendicular

Theore 3d.

base – Cathetus: hypotenusa:: :: greater seg: base - less seg base : base + Cathetus.

The Properties of ye Ellipsis

rx - mathML formula = yy. that is

rx - mathML formulaxx = yy for

mathML formula = r & mathML formula = mathML formula

am = a. bm = b. cm = c. ed = q. ei = x. id = q - x fi = y. en = r

b : c :: q - x : (ib)mathML formula. b : a :: x : (ik)mathML formula ki x il = mathML formula = fi x fi = yy

bb : ac :: q : en = mathML formula = r. bb : ac :: x : on = mathML formula wherefore rx - (onx) = mathML formula. = yy.

Af = q \= axi transo: sive primo/ : ch = p. fg = r = lateri recto. ad = x {illeg} df = q - x. dh = y.

(1) q : p :: p : r. (2) yy : xq - xx :: r : q. therefo 3 q : q{r} : q{illeg} 3 {illeg} yy = rx - mathML formula as before.

af is ye first & transverse axis or side

ch is ye seacond & right axis

fg is ye Parameter or right side

If ye lines (pq, rs) are parallell & co ye common axis of both ye Ellipses yn are ye 2 Ellipses equall to one another, for ax = {sic} be. ye conjugated diam: cut ye touch points of pq, rs & parallells to these are also conjugated.
