PROPOSITION XXIII.

At a given point in a given straight line, to make a rectilineal angle equal to a given rectilineal angle.

Let be the given straight line, and the given point in it, and

the given rectilineal angle.

It is required, at the given point in the given straight line to make an angle that shall be equal to the given rectilineal angle

Wherefore, at the given point in the given straight line

the angle
