|Book VI Proposition 1|
since the parallelogram EC is double of the triangle ABC, [I.41]
the parallelogram FC is double of the triangle ACE,
while parts have the same ratio as the same multiples of them [V.15], therefore
as the triangle ABC is to the triangle ACD,
so is the parallelogram EC to the parallelogram FC.
