1. (Prove) If a line is drawn parallel to one side 
    of a triangle to intersect the other two sides
    in distinct points,the other two sides are divided 
    in the same ratio.

2. (Motivate) If a line divides two sides of a triangle 
    in the same ratio, the line is parallel to the third side. 

3. (Motivate) If in two triangles, the corresponding angles 
    arc equal, their corresponding sides are proportional and 
    the triangles are similar.

4. (Motivate) If the corresponding sides of two triangles are 
    proportional, their corresponding angles are equal and  the
    two triangles are similar.

5. (Motivate) If one angle of a triangle is equal to one angle
    of another triangle and the sides including these angles 
    are proportional,the two triangles are similar.

6. (Motivate) If a perpendicular is drawn from the vertex of 
    the right angle of a right triangle to the hypotenuse,the 
    triangles on each side of the perpendicular are similar to 
    the whole triangle and to each other.

7. (Prove) The ratio of the areas of two similar triangles is 
    equal to the ratio of the squares of their corresponding 
    sides.

8. (Prove) In a right triangle, the square on the hypotenuse
