Proposition: 1.42: Construction of Parallelograms I
(Proposition 42 from Book 1 of Euclid's “Elements”)
To construct a parallelogram equal to a given triangle in a given rectilinear angle.
Modern Formulation
Given an arbitrary acute angle (\(D\)) and an arbitrary triangle (\(\triangle{ABC}\)), it is possible to construct a parallelogram equal in area to the triangle, which also contains the given angle (\(D=\angle{FEC}\))
