Book II Proposition 9 | |
Again, since EG is equal to GF, the square on EG is also equal to the square on GF; therefore the squares on EG, GF are double of the square on GF. But the square on EF is equal to the squares EG, GF, therefore the square on EF is double of the square on GF. But GF is equal to CD; [I.34] therefore the square on EF is double of the square on CD. |
