Book III Proposition 36 | |
First let it be through the center, and let F be the center of the circle ABC; let FB be joined; therefore the angle FBD is right. [III.18] And, since AC has been bisected at F, and CD is added to it, the rectangle AD, DC together with the square on FC is equal to the square on FD. [II.6] But FC is equal to FB; therefore the rectangle AD, DC together with the square on FB is equal to the square on FD. |
