Book I Proposition 11 | |
For, since DC is equal to EC, and CF is common
(to the triangles DCF and ECF), the two sides DC, CF are equal to the two sides EC, CF respectively; and the base DF is equal to the base EF; therefore the angle DCF is equal to the angle ECF; [I.8] and they are adjacent angles. But, when a straight line set up on a straight line makes the adjacent angles equal to one another,each of the equal angles is right; [Def.10] |
