COROLLARY

, or Consectary, a consequence drawn from some proposition or principles already advanced or demonstrated, and without the aid of any other proposition: as if from this theorem, That a triangle which has two equal sides, has also two equal angles, this consequence should be drawn, that a triangle which hath the three sides equal, has also its three angles equal.
