Book I Proposition 33 | |
And, since AB is equal to CD, and BC is common, the two sides AB, BC are equal to the two sides DC, CB; and the angle ABC is equal to the angle BCD; therefore the base AC is equal to the base BD; and the triangle ABC is equal to the triangle BCD, and the remaining angles will be equal to the remaining angles restectively, namely those which the equal sides subtend; [I.4] therefore the angle ABC is equal to the angle CBD. |
