paffing thro' E D, DC, meeting the said Plane in the † 23. 1. Point G, and join DG; make + the Angles BAL,
BAK, at the given Point A, with the Right Line
Lastly, make A K equal to DG, and at the Point 12 of this. K erect * HK, at Right Angles to the Plane paffing
thro' B AC; and make K H equal to GF; and join HA. I say, the solid Angle at A, which is contained under the three plane Angles BAL, BAH, HA L, is equal to the folid Angle at D, which is contained under the plane Angles E DE, EDF, FDC: For let the equal Right Lines A B, D Е, be taken ; and join H B,
KB, FE, GE: Then, becaule F G is perpendicular 1 Def. 3. of to the Plane passing thro’ED, DC, it fhall be I per
pendicular to all the Right Lines touching it, that are in the said Plane: Wherefore both die Angles FGD, FGE, are Right Angles. For the fame Reason, both the Angles HKA, R KB, are Right Angles ; and be. cause the two Sides KA, A B, are equal to the two
Sides GD, DE, each to each, and contain equal An+ 4.1.
gles, the Bale B K shall be † equal to the Bale EG: But K H is also equal o GF; and they contain Right Angles; therefore, HB Inall be + equal to F E. Again, because the two Sides A K, K H, are equal to the two Sides D G G F, and they contain Right Angles ; the Base A H shall be equal to the Base DF: But A B is equal to D E; therefore the two S des HA, A B, are equal to the two Sides F D, DE. But the Base H B is
equal to the Base F E; and fo the Angle BAH will be 78.1, tequal to the Angle EDF: For the fame Reason,
the Angle HAL is equal to the Angle FDC: For, since, it A L be taken equal to DC; and KL, HL, GC, FC, be joined; the whole Angle BAL is equal to the whole Angle EDC; and the Angle B A K, a Part of the one, is put equal to the Angle E D G, a Part of the other; the Angle KAL, remaining, will be equal to the Angle G D C remaining. And because the two Sides K A, A L, are equal to the two Sides GD, DC, and they contain equal Angles; the Base K L will be equal to the Base G C: But K His equal to GF; wherefore the two Sides LK, KH, are equal to the two Sides CG, GF: But they contain Right Angles; therefore the Base H'L will be equal to the
Base FC. Again, because the two Sides HA, AL,
similar, and in like manner situate, to
Parallelopipedon; ic is required to describe a solid Parallelopipedon upon the given Right Line A B, fimilar, and alike situate, to the given solid Parallelopiper don CD.
Make a folid Angle at the given Point 'A, in the Right Line A B, * contained under the Angle BAH, * 26 of ibis, HÀ K,K AB; fo that the Angle B AH may be equal to the Angle ECF, the Angle BAK to the Angle ECG, and the Angle HAK to the Angle GCF; and make, as EC is to CG, so B A + to AK; and + 12. 6. as G C to CF, so K A to AH: Then (by Equality of Proporcion) as E C is to CE, so thall B Abe to AH: Compleat the Parallelogram BH. and the Solid AL; then, because it is, as E C is to GC, so is A B to AK; viz. the Sides about the equal Angles ECG BAK, proportional; the Parallelogram K B Thall be similar to the Parallelogram G E. Also, for the same Reason the Parallelogram ķ H hall be similar to the Parallelogram GF, and the Parallelogram H B to the Parallelogram FE: Therefore three Parallelograms of the Solid A L, are similar to three Parallelograms of the Solid CD. But these three Parallolograms are equal and similar to their three opposite ones; there
1 Cor. 10. fore the whole Solid AL will be similar to the whole of ebis. Solid CD; and so, a solid Parallelopipedon A L is described upon the given Right Line A B, Jimilar and alike fatuate, to the given folid Parallelopipedon CD; which was to be done.

Prism contained under the two Triangles CFB, DEH, 1Def. 10. of
