1that the part towards the leſſer Magnitudes is
more than triple the remaining part; and alſo
one may take a diſtance that is to the ſame leſs
than triple.
In the Ballance B E let there be Magnitudes, ſuch as were ſpoken off,
from which let there be other Magnitudes taken away that were to
one another as they were diſpoſed in the precedent, and let it be of
the compound of all
the A A: the reſt

in which are C
ſhall be diſtributed
in the ſame order,
but the greateſt de­
ficient.
Let E D be
triple to D B; and
G F triple to F B.
D ſhall be the Center
of the Equilibrium
of the compound con­
ſiſting of all the A A;
and F that of the
compound of all the
C C.
Wherefore the
Center of the com­
pound of both A A
and C C falleth be­
tween D and F.
Let
it be O.
It is there­
fore manifeſt that
E O is more than triple to O B; but G O leſs thantriple to the
ſame O B: Which was to be demonſtrated.
