I was going through the section "Heron's proof of AL,BK.CF in Euclid's Figure meet in a point", in God Created the Integer's book . The statement of problem and its proof are both in very vague form. While searching the internet, all I found was link to the "The Thirteen Books Of Euclid", which also has exact same vague statement and proof. It seems Hawkins lifted it straight from that book. Any how, I want to know the exact problem statement and proof.

    $\begingroup$ I suppose you are asking about the proof given in Heath's commentary to Euclid, on page 366 of Vol. 1. But you cannot expect everybody to have that book at hand, hence you should explain better the matter and what exactly you don't understand in that proof. $\endgroup$ – Aretino May 31 at 20:25

    $\begingroup$ There were some types in God Created the Integers. which is not there in the link you mentioned. Hence, I understood the proof from the link you mentioned. $\endgroup$ – V K Jun 7 at 12:36
