The ratio of the parallelogram AC to EG may be found thus : take the straight line MN given in position and magnitude, and make the angle MNO equal to the given angle KAB, and the angle NMO equal to the given angle AKB or FEH: and because the ratio of AB to EF is given, make the ratio of NO to P the same; also make the ratio of P to Q the same with the given ratio of BC to FG, the parallelogram AC is to EG, as MO to Q. Because the angle KAB is equal to the angle MNO, and the angle AKB equal to the angle NMO; the triangle AKB is equiangular to NMO: therefore as KB to BA, so is MO to ON; and as BA to EF, so is NO to P; wherefore, ex æquali, as KB to EF, so is MO to P: and BC is to FG, as P to Q, and the parallelograms KC, EG, are equiangular; therefore, as was shewn in Prop. 67., the parallelogram KC, that is, AC, is to EG, as MO to Q.

If a parallelogram which has a given angle be applied to one side of a rectilineal figure given in species; if the figure have a given ratio to the parallelogram, the parallelogram is given in species. Let ABCD be a rectilineal figure given in species, and to one side of it AB, let the parallelogram ABEF having the given angle ABE be applied; if the figure ABCĎ have a given ratio to the parallelogram BF, the parallelogram BF is given in species. Through the point À draw AG parallel to BC, and through the point C draw CG parallel to AB, and produce GA, CB, to the points H, K; because the angle ABC is given *, and the ratio of AB to BC is given, • 3 Def. the figure ABCD being given in species, therefore the parallelogram BG is given* in species.

The angle EKB is also given, because it is equal to the # 1.6. * 9 Dat. * 3 Def. angle ABK; therefore the triangle BKE is given in D N AV B PI Q R Because the angle ABK is equal to NLM, and the angle ABE to NLO, the angle KBE is equal to MLO; and the angles BKE, LMO, are equal, because the angle ABK is equal to. NLM; therefore the triangles BKE, LMO, are equiangular to one another; wherefore, as BE to BK, so is LO to LM; and because as the figure BF to BD, so is the straight line LM to P; and as BD to BG, so is P to Q; ex æquali, as BF, that is*, BH, to BG, so is LM to Q: but BH is to * BG, as KB to BC; as therefore KB to BC, so is LM to Q; and because BE is to BK, as LO to LM; and as BK to BC, so is LM to Q; and as BC to BA, so Q was made to R; therefore, ex æquali, as BE to BA, so is LO to R, that is, to LN; and the angles ABE, NLO, are equal; therefore the parallelogram BF is similar to LS.

Upon the straight line AB, conceive the parallelogram AG to be described, similar and similarly placed to FD; and because the ratio of AB to CD is given, and upon them are described the similar rectilineal figures AG, FD; the F A ratio of AG to FD is given *; and the ratio of FD AEB is given; therefore * the ratio of AEB to AG M. is given; and the angle ABG is given, because it is N equal to the angle FCD; H K Ľ because therefore the parallelogram AG, which has a given angle ABG, is applied to a side AB of the figure AEB given in species, and the ratio of AEB to AG is given, the parallelogram AG is given * in species : but FD is similar to * 69 Dat. AG; therefore FD is given in species. A parallelogram similar to FD may be found thus: take a straight line H given in magnitude; and because the ratio of the figure AEB to FD is given, make the ratio of H to K the same with it: also, because the ratio of the straight line CD to AB is given, find by the 54th Dat. the ratio which the figure FD described upon CD has to the figure AG described upon AB similar to FD; and make the ratio of K to L the same with that ratio : and because the ratios of H to K, and of K to L, are given, the ratio of H to L is given *; because there- * 9 Dat. fore, as AEB to FD, so is H to K; and as FD to AG, so is K to L: ex æquali, as AEB to AG, so is H to L; therefore the ratio of AEB to AG is given; and the figure AEB is given in species, and to its side AB the parallelogram AG is applied in the given angle ABG; therefore by the 69th Dat. a parallelogram may be found similar to ÁG: let this be the parallelogram MN; MN also is similar to FD; for, by the construction, MN is similar to AG, and AG is similar to FD; therefore the parallelogram FD is similar to MN. 81.

Let A, B, C, be three proportional straight lines, and D, E, F, three other; and let the ratio of A to D, and of C to F, be given; then the ratio of B to E is also given. Because the ratio of A to D, as also of C to F, is given, the ratio of the rectangle A, C, to the rectangle • 67 Dat. D, F, is given *; but the square of B is equal * to the rectangle A, C; and the square of E to the rectangle* D, F; therefore the ratio of the square of B to the • 58 Dat. square of E is given; wherefore * also the ratio of the • 67 Dat. straight line B to E is given *. Next, let the ratio of A to D, and of B to E, be given; then the ratio of C to F is also given.
