Euclid

Parent Category: Mathematicians
Euclid was a Greek mathematician who became famous as the Father of Geometry. He was also known as Euclid of Alexandria, where he founded a school over 2,000 years ago. He published a 13 volume treatise called Elements, a collation of all the mathematics known at that time, which is the basis of geometry still taught in modern schools more than 2,000 years later.

Euclid was known as the father of geometry, so no he was not known  as a mother except in the blurted utterance, "Who was the mutha  that invented geometry."
In my World History book it says, EUCLID.
He was the father of geometry and he discovered many ways of finding angles
Euclid is best known for his treatise on mathematics, The Elements. His book is one of the most influential works in the history of mathematics, serving as the main textbook for teaching math, especially geometry, from the time of its publication until the late 19th or early 20th century. The...
Probably the best known equivalent of Euclid's parallel  postulate, contingent on his other postulates, is Playfair's axiom, named after the Scottish  mathematician John Playfair, which states:  In a plane, given a line and a point not on it, at most one line  parallel to the given line can be...
Euclid's "The Elements," is a geometric treatise consisting of 13 books written by him circa 300 BC. However, it was compiled from the works of several earlier mathematicians from earlier centuries.
If you are asking about Long Beach, CA and Euclid, OH, the shortest distance is 2,368 miles.
For his major study, Elements, Euclid collected the work of many mathematicians who preceded him. Among these were Hippocrates of Chios, Theudius, Theaetetus, and Eudoxus. Euclid's vital contribution was to gather, compile, organize, and rework the mathematical concepts of his predecessors into a...
he thought with his mind

Kepler discovered his three "Laws of Planetary Motion".Kepler discovered that if you assume three pretty simple things about how a planet moves in its orbit, then those things can explain all the observations and measurements that Tycho Brahe collected in his notebooks during most of his life....
Hippocrates and Euclid made their greatest achievements in the fields of Mathematics, Medicine, and Engineering. Found in "Halt Social Studies: World History" in Chapter 9, Section 4 - Greek Achievements on page 282.

Euclid is popularly referred to as the Father of Geometry. He was a  Greek mathematician. He applied elements in the geometry field to  depict the work in two frames. He made contributions to the optics  and conics field. That's why he is sometimes referred to as founder  of optics also.
Euclid wrote "The Elements", in which he made many rules that define the geometry taught in schools today.
If two straight lines cut one another, the vertical, or opposite, angles shall be equal.

Example: 72 and 120.   The factors of 72 are 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 9, 12, 18, 24, 36, 72   The factors of 120 are 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10, 12, 15, 20, 24, 30,  40, 60, 120   Now, which are the same?   1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, 24   Which number is the largest?   24, the GCD
The thirteenth and last book of the Elements of Euclid deals with the construction of the five "Platonic solids": the tetrahedron, octahedron, cube, icosahedron and dodecahedron. It applies Eudoxus' method of exhaustion to prove that the areas of circles are to one another as the squares of their...
The thirteenth book of "Euclid's Elements" is called regular  solids. In this final book, Euclid names and describes the  properties of the five regular solids and ends it by proving no  other regular solids exist.
It´s almost impossible to enlighten this, but possibly Apollonius (Cronus) and former ideas of Plato.

Answer . Philosophy is the study of everything, thinking of every possibility and every possibility within that possibility. Most other fields only study what is within the realms of their field. It's not so much a study, as it is people using their fully functioning brain to contemplate all...

Nothing is known about his personal life.
he was not poor because he was a tutor
Euclid is remembered mostly for his work, Elements, which  is a collation of all the mathematics known at the time when he  lived and taught at the University in Alexandria in Egypt.
euclid taught mathmetics which is a fancy way of saying  MATH! NOW CAN SOMEONE ELSE PLEASE ANSWER THIS, THIS IS FOR  HPMEWORK

Euclid wanted to prove things were true by using logic and reasoning.
Euclid lived during the reign of Ptolemy I and wrote an work made comprised of 13 volumes called Elements. As ruler during his reign (323-283 BC), Ptolemy personally sponsored Euclid, but found his work to hard to comprehend. Once, when Ptolemy asked of Euclid if there was no shorter road to...
No, prime numbers already existed. Euclid simply made some important mathematical contributions related to prime numbers. Among others, he discovered a surprisingly simple proof that the set of prime numbers is infinite; and he discovered that the prime factorization of any natural number is unique.
Euclid proved that it is impossible to find the "largest prime number," because if you take the largest known prime number, add 1 to the product of all the primes up to and including it, you will get another prime number. Euclid's proof for this theorem is generally accepted as one of the "classic"...
No one really knows what Euclid of Alexandria is like. Most of the documentation about Euclid himself was written after his death by Proclus and Pappus of Alexandria. Very little is known about him, no one even knows the physical appearance of Euclid. According to some of his quotes, Euclid could...

If I understand you correctly, you would like us to provide you  with a list of mathematicians, no matter their area of  concentration, over a two thousand year time period. We're not here  to write research papers of that magnitude. If you could narrow  your request, you might receive a more...
wrote the book "elements of geometry"?
It is 356 miles according to Google Maps.

The story may be apocryphal, but the implication is that knowledge  is not obtained by birthright.

He was said to have attened Ptolemy I at his newly founded school after studying at Platos university.
Many ideas of mathematics began to form. During this time frame  people began to see math as important and so many thinkers spent  time trying to solve the worlds problems using math.
Euclid the mathmatican is thought to have been born in Greece.
The name Euclid is an English translation of the Greek name Eukleides. Eukleides, meaning 'good glory', was probably his first name. Family names in the 4th Century BC usually referred to the place where a person was born, and is not known in Euclid's case. There is no known record of Euclid's...

Euclid's fifth postulate: If two lines are drawn which intersect a  third in such a way that the sum of the inner angles on one side is  less than two right angles, then the two lines inevitably must  intersect each other on that side if extended far enough.    It can be rewritten: If two...
Euclid's Elements is the name you're after.
Yes.  According to Euclid's 5th postulate, when n  line falls on l and m and if  , producing line l and m further will meet in  the side of ∠1 and ∠2 which is less than  If  The lines l and m neither meet at the side of  ∠1 and ∠2 nor at the side of ∠3 and ∠4. This means that the...
Euclid is known as the Father of Geometry or The Alexandrian mathematician.
