## triangle

The district of Bugey occupies the **triangle** formed by the Rhone in the south-east of the department.

Its form is approximately that of an isosceles **triangle**, with the sharp angle extending into Lower California, W.

We reach similar conclusions when we recognize that the laws of nature are general or hypothetical; not in Mill's sense (" If you had such a non-existent thing as three perfectly straight lines united in a **triangle** "), but in a sense noted in F.

To say, for instance, that the area of a right-angled **triangle** is half the area of the rectangle contained by the two sides, is not to say what the area is, but what it is the half of.

Since the potential rises proportionately to the quantity in the conductor, the ends of these ordinates will lie on a straight line and define a **triangle** whose base line is a length equal to the total quantity Q and V height a length equal to the final potential V.

If the section of the finished tube is to be a **triangle**, with the enamel and bore at the base, the molten mass is pressed into a V-shaped mould before it is pulled out.

The Treaty of Trianon satisfied the most essential claims of Yugoslavia, by dividing the whole Banat (save a small Magyar **triangle** opposite the city of Szeged) between her and Rumania, and by assigning to her the whole Backa (except Baja and district), part of the Baranya (forming the angle between Drave and Danube) and the Medjumurje (between Drava and Mur).

quadrilaterals, hexagons, &c., all of which are rectilineal figures, a **triangle** is "differentiated" as having three sides.

If there were such a thing as a **triangle** contained by absolutely straight lines, its three angles would no doubt measure what Euclid says; but straight lines and true **triangle**s nowhere exist in reruns natura.

For fuller discussion reference should be made to Geometry and Trigonometry, as well as to the articles dealing with particular figures, such as Triangle, Circle, &C.
