Book II Proposition 12 | |
But the square on CB is equal to the squares on CD, DB, for the angle at D is right; [I.47] and the square on AB is equal to the squares on AC, DB; [I.47] therefore the square on CB is equal to the squares on CA, AB and twice the rectangle contained by CA, AD; so that the square on CB is greater than the squares on CA, AB by twice the rectangle contained by CA, AD. Being what it was required to prove. |
