A famous Greek mathematician Thales gave an important
truth relating to two equiangular triangles which is as
follows: The ratio of any two corresponding sides in two
equiangular triangles is always the same. It is believed that
he had used a result called the Basic Proportionality
Theorem (now known as the Thales Theorem) for the same.
