Proposition: 5.15: Ratio Equals its Multiples
(Proposition 15 from Book 5 of Euclid's “Elements”)
Parts have the same ratio as similar multiples, taken in corresponding order.
* For let $AB$ and $DE$ be equal multiples of $C$ and $F$ (respectively).
* I say that as $C$ is to $F$, so $AB$ (is) to $DE$.
Modern Formulation
In modern notation, this proposition reads that \[\frac\alpha\beta=\frac{m\,\alpha}{m\,\beta},\]
for all positive real numbers \(\alpha\), \(\beta\), and all multiples of aliquot parts \(m > 1\).
Generalized Modern Formulation
since $\frac mm=1$, this follows immediately from the existence and uniqueness of real 1.
