Book II Proposition 13 | |
For, since the straight line CB has been cut at random at the point D, the squares on CB and BD are equal to twice the rectangle contained by CB, BD and the square on DC. [II.7] Let the square on DA be added to each; therefore the squares on CB, BD, DA are equal to twice the rectangle contained by CB, BD and the squares on AD, DC. |
