  1. Archimedes tangent to the parabola propositionArchimedes Proposition: If from a point …1… on a parabola a straight line…2.. be drawn which parallel or equal to the axis, and if the segment …3..  is a chord parallel to the tangent to the parabola at ..1.. and meeting …2.. in M, then …4… Conversely, if …4… , then  the chord …3.. will be parallel to the tangent at …1…
  2. Apollonius tangent to the parabola proposition.  Consider a line …5.., perpendicular to the axis of the parabola, and through point …6.., intersecting the axis at point ..7… Define point …8., so that …9(equality)…, where …10… is the vertex of the parabola. Then line…11.. is the tangent to the parabola at .12…
