Proposition: Prop. 10.094: Side of Area Contained by Rational Straight Line and Fourth Apotome
(Proposition 94 from Book 10 of Euclid's “Elements”)
If an area is contained by a rational (straight line) and a fourth apotome then the square root of the area is a minor (straight line).
* For let the area $AB$ have been contained by the rational (straight line) $AC$ and the fourth apotome $AD$.
* I say that the square root of area $AB$ is a minor (straight line).
