It will be noted in connection with the diagrams presented in this book, that the authors have indicated lines by a single letter. This is for conciseness; and no confusion need arise if the general scheme of the parallelogram be borne in mind, which in every case has for its base line A, its left-hand side B, the upper line C, and the right-hand side D. In the more complex figures arrows are used to designate the direction of the lines.
