Book VI Proposition 5 | |
Therefore in the triangles ABC, GEF the sides about the equal angles are proportional, and those are corresponding sides which subtend the equal angles; [VI.4] therefore as AB is to BC, so is GE to EF. But as AB is to BC, so by hypothesis is DE to EF; therefore as DE is to EF, so is GE to EF. [V.11] |
