Página 211 - AB shall be at right angles to the plane CK. Let any plane DE pass through AB, and let CE be the common section of the planes DE, CK ; take any point F in CE, from which draw FG in the plane DE at right D angles to CE ; and because AB is , perpendicular to the plane CK, therefore it is also perpendicular to every straight line in that plane meeting it (3.
