...EG. Because EF is equal to EG we have EF'—EF=EF'—EG. But EF' — EG, is less than F'G, because the difference of any two sides of a triangle is less than the third side. That is, EF' — EF is less than A' A; consequently the point E is without the curve (Prop. 2), and... ## Euclid's plane geometry, practically applied; book i, with explanatory notes ...
