Here, the original figure is extended to forward the proof. However, Euclid’s eukkid proof of this proposition, is general, valid, and does not depend on the figure used as an example to illustrate one given configuration.

The austere beauty of Euclidean geometry has been seen by many in western culture as a glimpse of an otherworldly system of perfection and certainty.

City states Politics Military. However, Euclid’s systematic development of his subject, from a small set of axioms to deep results, and the consistency of his approach throughout the Elementsencouraged its use as a textbook for about 2, years.
