Let circle A E C be [described] about center D [see Fig. 6], while the side of the [regular] hexagon will be A E and the side of the triangle C E , by the fifteenth [proposition] of the second chapter of this [work, thc D e a r te m e n su ra n d i ]. Therefore, on each side let a semicircle be drawn. I say that the lunes drawn [on these sides] taken together are equal to A A E C , which is one-third of the [regular] hexagon inscribed in the circle. 30 (=Gr. 31). Hence, by the penultimate [proposition] of [Book] I [of the E le m e n ts ], A C 2 = A E 2 + E C 2.
