On Divisions of Figures. Euclid (/ ˈ juː k l ɪ d /; Ancient Greek: Εὐκλείδης – Eukleídēs, pronounced [ː.dɛːs]; fl. BC), sometimes called Euclid of Alexandria to distinguish him from Euclid of Megara, was a Greek mathematician, often referred to as the "founder of geometry" or the "father of geometry".

He was active in Alexandria during the reign of Ptolemy I (– BC).Fields: Mathematics. Book 11 generalizes the results of book 6 to solid figures: perpendicularity, parallelism, volumes and similarity of parallelepipeds.

Book 12 studies the volumes of cones, pyramids, and cylinders in detail by using the method of exhaustion, a precursor to integration, and shows, for example, that the volume of a cone is a third of the Language: Ancient Greek.

Abstract. It is shown how a diagram on the reverse of a Greek coin of Aegina of the fifth century b.c.e., is simply constructed with the help of Proposition 36 of Euclid’s Book on Divisions [of Figures], and it is conjectured in the absence of contemporary evidence that, since Euclid expressly designated this proposition to be the last in the book, he may have had in mind the diagram, which Cited by: 2.

The book includes the basic rules of logic, everyday geometric objects’ precise definitions, and the rules of arithmetic. Although being an amazing work in the history of mathematics, it still has its critics.

The more advanced treatment of proportion in plane figures must come after the general treatment of ratio and proportion in Book V.

In my opinion, deferring Book IV until after Book VI would be inappropriate, as the construction, inscription and circumscription of regular polygons is independent of the treatment of proportion, and so belongs to the elementary part of the science.

In Book X. Euclid also wrote the following books which have survived: Data, which looks at what properties of figures can be deduced when other properties are given, On Divisions, which looks at constructions to divide a figure into two parts with areas of given ratio, Optics, which is the first Greek work on perspective, and Phaenomena, which is an.
