    • “The angles at the base of an isosceles triangle are equal”

    • “The circle encompasses the greatest area for a given circumference”

    • “The external angles of a polygon equal 4 right angles” (Or 360°)

    • “The equal sides of an isosceles triangle are each greater than the altitude of the triangle drawn from the angle formed by the equal sides”
