Again, because the straight line ilk cuts the parallel straight lines E r and c D, the exterior angle aur is equal (I. 29) to the interior angle 11 K. But it was proved that the angle Agh is equal to the angle G I F; therefore the angle A G u is equal (Ax. 1) to the angle G KD; and these are alternate angles; therefore A B is parallel (I. 27) to c D.
