Theorem 1

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

Theorem 2.

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

Theorem 3d.

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