Book II Proposition 9 | |
And, since the angle GEF is half a right angle, and the angle EGF is right, for it is equal to the interior and opposite angle ECB, [I.29] the remaining angle EFG is half a right angle; [I.32] therefore the angle GEF is equal to the angle EFG, so that the side EG is also equal to GF. [I.6] For the same reason the side DF is also equal to DB. |
