Book I Proposition 1 | |
It was shown that CA is equal to AB and also that CB is equal to AB; therefore each of CA, CB is equal to AB. But things equal to the same thing are also equal to one another [C.N.1]; therefore CA is also equal to CB. Therefore the three lines CA, AB, BC are equal to one another. |
