    1. Two Saccheri quadrilaterals with congruent bases and congruent summit angles are congruent (i.e., the remaining pairs of corresponding parts are congruent).


    2. The line segment joining the midpoint of the base and the midpoint of the summit divides the Saccheri quadrilateral into two Lambert quadrilaterals.

      Well clearly it creates two quadrilaterals who both have two right angles, and therefore a lambert quadrilateral

    3. The line segment joining the midpoints of the sides is not perpendicular to either side.

      Is that because the summit angles are acute? Or, one of them must be acute, since if they were both right, we would have a neutral geometry that contains Euclid's 5th (parallel postulate).
