Proposition: 3.21: Angles in Same Segment of Circle are Equal
(Proposition 21 from Book 3 of Euclid's “Elements”)
In a circle, angles in the same segment are equal to one another.
* Let $ABCD$ be a circle, and let $BAD$ and $BED$ be angles in the same segment $BAED$.
* I say that angles $BAD$ and $BED$ are equal to one another.
The inscribed angles joining the ends of the same arc are equal.
