...of the of the Concerned 2 May The History of Projective **Geometry** Introduction Projective **geometry** is the aspects of mathematical studies that had to do with the study of relationships existing between geometric figures and the mappings or images that are brought into existence as a result of the projection of these geometric figures on some other surface. The focus of the projective **geometry** is the geometric aspects and properties that are affiliated to changes of perspectives. To put it in simple words, projective **geometry** delves on geometrical aspects like concurrence and co- linearity and ignores properties like distances and angles. In the everyday life, one often...

...to Euclidean **geometry**, the parallel postulate when extended makes a three sided diagram that is interior angles sum up to 1800. This is because the subsequent angles are **reflections** of the points of origin (Eves, 1990). (a) (c) (b) From the diagram above, we can prove that the exterior angle at (a) is equal to the summation of interior angle (b) and (c). The interior angle at pint (a) thus sums up to 180 with the other two angles; (b) and (c). Existence of rectangles in reference to hyperbolic theorem Interior angles in a rectangle add up to 360 degrees. Opposite angles are equal and parallel thus making the figure have four opposite right angles. This is because the base length is a hyperbola and hardly...

...(1984), Leon Krier is an architect which conceives of cities as a whole, and that his buildings are conceived to be part of the larger whole. He needs to conceptualize the town or the city when he designs his buildings, because simply constructing a disembodied part of the city – a building - is not of an interest to him. This, according to Porphyrios, makes Krier a “heterosexual. All his single buildings have real or implied partners” (Pophyrios, 1984, p. 12). Or, as Pophyrios, his buildings belong to larger **groups**, and these **groups** and families are conceived as being a part of the need of the society to which they serve. In this way, Krier is not narcissistic. His buildings are not...

...Fractal **Geometry** Fractal **geometry** is rather new mathematical theory which is completely different from the traditional concepts of Euclidean **Geometry**. Fractal **geometry** describes elf-similar or scale symmetric objects. It means that if to magnify these objects, their parts will bear an exact resemblance to the whole object. The word "fractal" was created by Benoit Mandelbrot and it means "to break", whereas the form of adjective "fractus" means "fragmentated". (Brandt 24)
It is a matter of fact that the word "fractal" has two definite meanings: the first meaning refer to colloquial use and the second is connected with **geometry**. In colloquial speech fractal...

1. Key definitions
To make our considerations of extensions of the Euler's theorem and triangulation concepts more pure, we need to preliminary define the key notions from the related topics.
First of all, polygon is a closed plane figure with sides (Weisstein 2002). Then, a polyhedron is the union of a finite set of polygons such that: (i) any pair of polygons meets only at their sides or corners; (ii) each side of each polygon meets exactly one other polygon along an edge; (iii) it is possible to travel from the interior of any polygon to the...

AB=AC
Hence triangle ABC is isosceles.
AM is perpendicular to BC from construction
Given
AM is common(Reflexive property by construction)

An isosceles triangle is a triangle with at least two congruent sides
Conclusion:
This proves that, 'If the base angles of a triangle are congruent, then the triangle is isosceles.'

...**Geometry** **Geometry** is a branch of mathematics that deals or attempts to explain and describe the shape, size, or relative position of an object in space. The study of **geometry** dates back to the time of ancient Greek. The Euclidian **geometry** for example originated in the 6th century and it laid the foundation for modern **geometry**. Currently, the study has advanced to include other branches of mathematics such as number theory, algebra, and topology. Riemannian **geometry** for example is among the latest braches of **geometry**. Each of the above fields of specialization has a different approach to the study of **geometry** (Mlodinow, 2002). Indeed, a good mathematician will view the different branches of **geometry** as mere tools designed to enable... ...

...Step Draw a line AB that we will be divided into 3 (in this case) equal parts. From point A, draw a line segment at an angle to the given line, and about the same length. The exact length is not important.
Set the compasses on A, and set its width to a bit less than one third of the length of the new line.
Step the compasses along the line, marking off 3 arcs. Label the last one C.
With the compasses width set to CB, draw an arc from A just below it.
With the compasses width set to AC, draw an arc from B crossing the one drawn in step 4. This intersection is point D.
Draw a line from D to B.
Using the same compasses width as used to step along AC, step the compasses from D along DB making 3 new arcs across the line
