First, let the insisting straight lines be at right angles to the bases AB, CD, and let the bases be placed in the same plane, and so that the sides CL, LB р R may be in a straight line; therefore the straight line LM, which is at X right angles to the plane in which the bases are, in the point L, is com AS mon * to the two solids AE, CF: let HT • 13. 11. the other insisting lines of the solids be AG, HK, BE; DF, OP, CN: and first, let the angle ALB be equal to the angle CLD: then AL, LD are in a straight line *.
