Book III Proposition 3 | |
Then, since
AF is equal to FB,
and
FE is common, two sides are equal to two sides; and the base EA is equal to the base EB; therefore the angle AFE is equal to the angle BFE. [I.8] But, when a straight line set up on a straight line makes the adjacent angles equal to one another, each of the equal angles is right; [I.Def.10] therefore each of the angles AFE, BFE is right. |
