Book VI Proposition 25 | |
Then, since, as BC is to GH, so is GH to CF, and, if three straight lines be proportional, as the first is to the third, so is the figure on the first to the similar and similarly situated figure described on the second, [VI.19, Por.] therefore, as BC is to CF, so is the triangle ABC to the triangle KGH. But as BC is to CF, so also is the parallelogram BE to the parallelogram EF. [VI.1] |
