Book II Proposition 14 | |
Then, since the straight line BF has been cut into equal segments at G, and unequal segments at E, the rectangle contained by BE, EF together with the square on EG is equal to the square on GF. [II.5] But GF is equal to GH; therefore the rectangle BE, EF together with the square on GE is equal to the square on GH. |
