[83a] do you say we get the double space from the double line? The space I speak of is not long one way and short the other, but must be equal each way like this one, while being double its size—eight square feet. Now see if you still think we get this from a double length of line.

Boy
I do.

Socrates
Well, this line is doubled, if we add here another of the same length?

Boy
Certainly.

Socrates
And you say we shall get our eight-foot space from four lines of this length?

Boy
Yes.
