Book VI Proposition 18 | |
Let DF be joined, and on the straight line AB, and at the points A, B on it, let let the angle GAB be constructed equal to the angle at C, and the angle ABG equal to the angle CDF. [I.23] Therefore the remaining angle CFD is equal to the angle AGB; [I.32] therefore, the triangle FCD is equiangular with the triangle CAB. Therefore, proportionally, as FD is to GB, so is FC to GA, and CD to AB. [VI.4] |
