Then, since AF is equal to FB, and FG is common, the two sides AF, FG are equal to the two sides BF, FG; and the angle AFG is equal to the angle BFG; therefore the base AG is equal to the base BG. [I.4] Therefore the circle described with center G and distance GA will pass through B also. Let it be drawn, and let it be ABE; let EB be joined. Now, since AD is drawn from A, the extremity of the diameter AE, at right angles to AE, |
