Proposition: Prop. 10.095: Side of Area Contained by Rational Straight Line and Fifth Apotome
(Proposition 95 from Book 10 of Euclid's “Elements”)
If an area is contained by a rational (straight line) and a fifth apotome then the square root of the area is that (straight line) which with a rational (area) makes a medial whole.
* For let the area $AB$ have been contained by the rational (straight line) $AC$ and the fifth apotome $AD$.
* I say that the square root of area $AB$ is that (straight line) which with a rational (area) makes a medial whole.
