Page 223 - ... the two planes are equal polygons. Each side of one of the sections is parallel to the corresponding side of the other section, since they are the intersections of two parallel planes by a third. Hence, that portion of each side of the prism which is between the secant planes, is a parallelogram. Since the sections have their sides respectively equal and parallel, their angles are respectively equal. Therefore, the polygons are equal. 674.
