the number of one Pair is different from that
between those of the other.
If the Antecedent of one Pair excedes or is exceded by its
consequent the same number of aliquots that the
Antecedent of the other pair excedes or is exceded by
its Consequent, the Antecedent of the first one
pair is said to have be on the same Proportion
to its Consequent as the Antecedent of
the other to its Consequent. there is said
to be the same proportion between the

be in the same proportion as the second other.
These Quantities are said to be proportionals.
But if the Antecedent of one Pair excedes its Consequent

of the other Pair excedes its Consequent
If The Antecedent of the second Pair being
thus divided into the same number of aliquots as the
Antecedent of the first pair, let a quantity
equal to one of these aliquots be assumed. in
the common now if this quantity repeated the
same Number of times as the Component common measure of
the first pair was to would be to equal the
consequent of the first pair, then if so often
