For if AB be not equal to AC, let one of them, as
Therefore if two Angles of a Triangle be equal between themselves, the Sides fubtending the equal Angles are likewise equal between themselves. Which was to be demonstrated.
. Hence every Equiangular Triangle is also Equilateral.

Then because AC is equal to AD, the Angle * 5 of this. A CD will be equal * to the Angle ADC, and con
sequently the Angle ADC is greater than the Angle BCD; wherefore the Angle BDC will be much greater than the Angle B CD. Again, because CB is equal to D B, the Angle BDC will be equal to the Angle BCD, but it has been proved to be much greater, which is impossible. Therefore on the same Right Line cannot be constituted two Right Lines equal to two ather Right Lines, each to each, at different Points, on the same Side, and having the fame Ends which the first Right Lines have; which was to be demonstrated.

Affume any Point D in the Right Line A B, and 3 of tbis. cut off A E from the Line AC equal to AD*; join + 1 of tbis. D E, and thereon make † the Equilateral Triangle
DEF, and join AF. I say, the Angle BAC is cut into two equal Parts by the Line AF.
For because A D is equal to A E, and A F is common, the two Sides D A, AF, are each equal to the
two Sides A E, AF, and the Base D F is equal to 1 8 of this, the Base E F; therefore I the Angle DAF is equal to
the Angle E AF. Wherefore a given Right-lin'd Angle is cut into two equalParts; which was to be done.
