an edge of a tetrahedron. N 0 larger number of sides is possible
for a section, as a tetrahedron has only four faces. Let A, A; B,
B; C, C be the three pairs of opposite vertices. Then BCB C' is a
rhombus with equal diagonals, i.e. a 281. 282. 283. 284. 285. Let
A, A; B, B; C, C be the mid-points of opposite faces of the cube.
Then the solid figure formed would be the figure whose edges are
got by joining A and A to B, B, C, C: 11.12. would be a regular
octahedron, from the next example. If A, A, &c. are the
mid-points of the faces, then AA, BB, CC' bisect each other at O,
and are mutually perpendicular. Hence all the lines joining A and A
to B, B, C, C are equaL That is the figure ABCA B'C is a solid
figure whose faces are equilateral triangles, and all of whose
solid angles are bounded by four plane angles. It is therefore a
regular octahedron. Let A, A; B, B; C, C be the mid-points of
opposite edges of a regular tetrahedron. Then the figure BC B C for
example is a rhombus, for each of its sides is equal to half the
edge of the tetrahedron that is parallel to it. BB bisects CC at
right angles, and similarly for each pair of lines AA, BB, CC . by
Ex. 283 the points A, A, &c. are the vertices of a regular
octahedron. If we plane off a vertex, or take a section through an
edge, we get a four-sided figure. If we take a section through a
vertex and cutting two adjacent faces of the four faces which form
that vertex, we get a four-sided figure. If we take a section
through a vertex and cutting two non-adjacent...
