Book VI Proposition 10 | |
Therefore each of the figures FH, HB is a parallelogram; therefore DH is equal to FG and HK to GB. [I.34] Now, since the straight line HE has been drawn parallel to KC, one of the sides of the triangle DKC, therefore, proportionally, as CE is to ED, so is KH to HD. [VI.2] But KH is equal to BG, and HD to GF; therefore, as CE is to ED, so is BG to GF. |
