Construction. Make DE equal to A.

At D draw DF at right angles to DE (1. 11), and equal to B (1. 3).

Join FE (Post. 1).

At F in the straight line FE draw FG at right angles to FE (1. 11); and make FG equal to C (1. 3).

Join GE; then

The square described upon GE is equal to the squares described on A, B, and C.
