Now, since the angle BCD is equal to the angle CDE, and the angle FCD is half of the angle BCD, and the angle CDF half of the angle CDE, therefore the angle FCD is also equal to the angle CDF; so that the side FC is also equal to the side FD. [I.6] Similarly it can be proved that each of the straight lines FB, FA, FE is equal to each of the straight lines FC, FD. |
