When a straight line set up on a straight line makes the adjacent angles equal to one another, each of the equal angles is right, and the straight line standing on the other is called a perpendicular to that on which it stands.

...therefore the angle AFE is equal to the angle B FE : (i. 8.) but when a straight line standing upon another **straight line makes the adjacent angles equal to one another, each of** them is a right angle ; (i. def. 10.) therefore each of the angles A FE, BFE, is a right angle : wherefore... | |
