History of Mathematics Theorem: If any number of sizes be given, which surpass each other by an equivalent sum equivalent to the slightest, furthermore different extents, break even with in number to the previous, yet every equivalent in amount to the best, every one of the sizes each of which is equivalent to the best, in addition to the best will be the copy of those surpassing each other by an equivalent sum.

Mathematics, Art and Architecture I record a quadrangle of right edges, as vast as I wish, which is thought to be an open window through which I see what I need to paint… ..Then inside the quadrangle, where it appears to be best to me, I make a point which involves the place where the focal beam strikes. This point is appropriately set when it is no higher from the gauge of the quadrangle than the stature of the man that I need to paint there… … ..
