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 ADG is equal (I. 8) to the angle GDB. But when a straight line standing upon another **straight line makes the adjacent angles equal to one another, each of** these angles is a right angle (I. Def. 10). Therefore the angle GDB is a right angle. But FDB is likewise... | |
