Página 47 - If a straight line be bisected and produced to any point, the rectangle contained by the whole line thus produced and the part of it produced, together with the square of half the line bisected, is equal to the square of the straight line which is made up of the half and the part produced. Let the straight line AB be bisected in C, and produced to D : the rectangle AD, DB, together with the square of CB, shall be equal to the square of CD.
