Book VI   Proposition 19
Therefore
    in the triangles ABG, DEF the sides about the equal angles are reciprocally proportional.

But
    those triangles which have one angle equal to one angle, and in which the sides about the equal angles are reciprocally proportional, are equal; [V.15]
therefore
    the triangle ABG is equal to the triangle DER.
