The ratio of AB to EF may be found thus: Take the straight line B В C M N tude; and make the angle NMO F equal to the given angle BAK, G P and the angle MNO equal to the given angle EFG or AKB: And because the parallelogram BL is equiangular to EG, and has a given ratio to it, and that the ratio of BC to FG is given; find by the 65th dat. the ratio of KB to EF; and make the ratio of NO to OP the same with it: Then the ratio of AB to EF is the same with the ratio of MO to OP: For since the triangle ABK is equiangular to MON, as AB to BK, so is MO to ON; and as KB to EF, so is NO to OP ; therefore, ex aequali, as AB to EF, so is MO to OP. 1 given ratios to one another, the parallelograms shall have a given ratio to one another. Let ABCD, EFGH be two equiangular parallelograms, and let the ratio of AB to EF, as also the ratio of BC to FG, be given; the ratio of the parallelogram AC to EG is given. Take a straight line K given in magnitude, and because the ratio of AB to EF is given, make the ratio of K to the A D E Η same with it, therefore L is given * : And because the ratio a 2. dat. of BC to FG is given, make the ratio of L to M the same : K Therefore M is given; and L F G K is given, wherefore b the M bi, dat. ratio of K to M is given : But the parallelogram AC is to the parallelogram EG, as the straight line K to the straight line M, Dd2 as ܘܠ B В as is demonstrated in the 23d prop. of b. 6.
