Theorem. If two intersecting lines are cut by parallel lines, the line segments cut by the parallel lines from one of the lines are proportional to the corresponding line segments cut by them from the other line.
The theorem may be condensed to the following form:
Proof. The areas of triangles, which have equal heights, are proportional to the bases of the triangles; if the bases are equal, then also the areas are equal. These facts are used in the
of equalities. Q.E.D.
