Book VI Proposition 2 | |
For using the same construction, since as BD is to DA, so is CE to EA, but, as BD is to DA, so is the triangle BDE to the triangle ADE, and, as CE is to EA, so is the triangle CDE to the triangle ADE, [VI.1] therefore also, as the triangle BDE to the triangle ADE, so is the triangle CDE to the triangle ADE. [V.11] |
