GEOMETRY AND CONIC SECTIONS.

Examiner-Dr. H. W. M'Cann.

1. If a straight line be divided into two equal, and also into two anequal parts, the squares on the two unequal parts are together double of the square on half the line and the square on the line between the points of section.

lilustrate this from Algebra.

2. If any chord of a circle be produced until the part produced is equal to the radius, and its extremity be joined with the centre of

the circle, and produced to the circumference, of the two aros intercepted between these two lines, the one is 3 times the other.

3. Describe a circle which shall touch the base of a triangle and the two sides produced.

Show that if the centre of the circle so described, and the centre of the circle inscribed in the triangle be joined to either extremity of the base, the joining lines are at right angles.

4. Give Euclid's definition of proportion, and illustrate it by proving that triangles of the same altitude are to one another as their bases.

5. A point moves so that its distances from two fixed points are in a constant ratio to one another. Prove that its locus is a circle.

6. When is a straight line at righv angles to a plane,' and when are two planes perpendicular to one another ?

If two straight lines are parallel, and one of them is at right angles to a plane, the other is also at right angles to the same plane.

7. Show that, in a parabola, tangents at the ends of a focal chord intersect at right angles in the directrix

Show also that, if from the ends of a focal chord perpendiculars be let fall upon the directrix, the intercepted portion of the directrix subtends a right angle at the focus.

8. The rectangles contained by the segments of any two intersecting chords of a parabola are to one another as the parameters of the diameters which bisect the chords. Hence show that if a circle intersect a parabola, the common chords are equally inclined to the axis of the parabola.

9. If perpendiculars be let fall from the two foci upon any tangent to an ellipse, prove that the feet of these perpendiculars lie, on the auxiliary circle, and the rectangle contained by the perpendiculars is equal to the square on the semi-axis minor.

10. Prove that in an ellipse the sum of the squares on two conju. gate semi-diameters is constant.

If along the normal at any point of an ellipse a portion be measured equal to the conjugate semi-diameter, the locus of its extremity is a circle.

11. Define an asymptote of an hyperbola, and prove that the curve continually approaches its asymptote but never meets it.

If a directrix of the hyperbola cut an asymptote in E, prove CE = CA, where C is the centre, and A a vertex.

12. If a chord Qq of an hyperbola be produced to meet the asymptotes in R, r, prove Q R = qr. Hence show that if the tangent at P meet one asymptote in T, and TQ, drawn parallel to the other asymptote, meet the curve in Q, and PQ be produced to meet the asymptotes in R,R', then RR' is trisected at the points P, Q.

TRIGONOMETRY AND MENSURATION.

Examiner-DR. H. W. M'Cann. 1. Explain what is meant by the “circular measure" of an angle, and prove that it is a correct measure.

If D, G, 0, be respectively the number of degrecs, grades, and units of circular measure in any angle, find the relation between D, G, 0.

2. Trage the variations in sign and magnitude of the secant of an angle as the angle increases from 0° to 360°.

Show how the trigonometrical ratios of all angles whatever, posi. tive or negative, may be made to depend upon those of some positive angle less than 45o.

3. Write down the general expressions for all angles which have (i) the same sine, (ii) the same cosine, (iii) the same tangent, as a given angle a.

Solve the equations, obtaining the value of 0 in the most complete form,

(a) Cot: 0 + 4 cos 0 = 6

(6) Sin 0 + cos 0 = 1

4. Obtain the formula

cos (A + B) = cos A cos B — sin A sin B. Assuming its truth when A, B, A + B, are each less than a right angle, prove it when A and B each lie between 90° and 180°, and (A + B) lies between 180° and 270°.

Express sin 2A, cos 2A, in terms of tan A, and express tan A in terms of cos 2A.

5. Given a, b, c, the three sides of a triangle, investigate a formula

for determining cos
If a = 4439, b = 4861, c = 8583 yards, find B, having given

log 8.9415 = .9514104, log 4:439 = 6472851,

log 4 0805 = .6107027, log 8:583 = .9336391

L cos 11°52' = 9.9906180, L cos 11°53' = 9.9905914. 6. Show how to solve a triangle having given two sides and the angle opposite one of them, and explain completely the resulting ambiguity. If a = 36, b = 44, A=32°42', find B and C, having given

log 3 = .4771213, log 11 = 1.0413927
L sin 32°42' = 9.7325870, L sin 41°19' = 9.8196888,

L sin 41°20' = 9:8198325.
