PROPOSITION IV . THEOREM . When two straight lines

**intersect**each other , the opposite or ver tical angles , which they form , are equal . Let AB and DE be two straight lines , intersecting BOOK I. 15. Page 16

The four angles formed about a point by two straight lines , which

The four angles formed about a point by two straight lines , which

**intersect**each other , are together equal to four right angles : for the sum of the two angles ACE , ECB , is equal to two right angles ; and the sum of the other two ... Page 17

Hence , the point D , falling at the same time in the two straight lines BA and CA , must fall at their

Hence , the point D , falling at the same time in the two straight lines BA and CA , must fall at their

**intersection**A : hence , the two triangles EDF , BAC , coincide with each other , and are therefore equal ( Ax . 13. ) . Cor . Page 49
