Congruent Angle Postulate

If two parallel lines are cut by a transversal, then each pair of corresponding angles is congruent.


Slope of Parallel Line Postulate

Parallel Lines have the same slope.


Perpendicular Lines Postulate

There slope is 1


Plane and Transversal Postulate

If two lines in a plane are cut by a transversal so that the corresponding angles are congruent, then the lines are parallel.


Parallel Postulate

If there is a line and a point not on the lines, then there exists exactly one line through the point that is parallel to the given line.


Lines with positive slopes, do what?

Rise


Lines with negative slopes, do what?

Fall


Lines with a slope of zero?

Horizontal Lines


Lines with an undefined slope (Example 6/0)?

Vertical Lines


Alternative Interior Angles Theorem

If two parallel lines are cut by a transversal, then each pair of alternative angles is CONGRUENT.


CONSECUTIVE INTERIOR Angles Theorem

If two parallel lines are cut by a transversal, then each pair of consecutive interior angles is SUPPLEMENTARY.


ALTERNATING EXTERIOR Angles Theorem

If two parallel lines are cut by a tranversal, then each pair of alternate exterior angles is CONGRUENT,


Perpendicular Transversal Theorem

In a plane, if a line is PERPENDICULAR to one of two parallel lines, then it is perpendicular to the other.


Formula for SLOPE

m = y2y1/x2x1


Skew Lines

Two lines that do NOT intersect and are NOT in the same plane.


Parallel Lines

Two lines in a place that never meet.


Transversal Line

a line that intersects two or more lines in a plane at diffferent points.


Parallel Lines Theorem with Exterior Congruent Angles

If two lines in a plane are cut by a transversal so that a pair of alternate exterior angles is congruent, then the two lines are parallel.


Parallel Lines Theorem with Consecutive Interior Angles (that are supplementary)

If two lines in a plane are cut by a transversal so that a pair of consecutive interior angles is SUPPLEMENTARY, then the lines are parallel.


Parallel Lines Theorem with Alternate Interior Angles

If two lines in a plane are cut by a transversal so that a pair of alternate interior angles is congruent, then the lines are parallel.


Parallel Line Theorem with Perpendicular Lines

In a plane if two lines are perpendicular to the same line, then they are parallel.


Definition between a Point and a Line

The distance from a line to a point not on the line is the length of the segment perpendicular to the line from the point.


Definition of the distance between parallel lines

Definition of the distance between two parallel lines is the distance between one of the lines and any point on the other line.


Postulate

principles accepted as true without proof.


Conjecture

Educated Guess


Counterexample

An example used to show that a given general state is not always true.


Conditional Statements

These are "if" "then" statements.


Converse

Exchanging the hypothesis and conclusion of a conditional .
p q is q p 

Negation

denial of a statement. P represent "not p" or negation of "p"


Inverse of Conditional Statement

given a conditional statement its inverse can be formed by negating both the hypothesis and conclusion. The inverse of a true statement is not necessarily true. The inverse of p q is "Not p not q"


Inductive Reasoning

when you see the same thing happeneing again and again (a pattern).


Deductive Reasoning

When you see the laws of logic and statement that are known to be true reach a conclsuion.


Law of Detachment

if p q is a true conditional and p is true than q is true.


Law of Syllogism

id p q and q r are true conditionals, then p r is also true.


Postulates

Principles accepted as true without proof.


One Line Postulate

Through any two points, there is exactly one line.


One Plane Postulate

Through any three points NOT on the sme line there is exactly one plane.


Line Postulate

A line contains at least two points.


Place Postulate

A plane contain at least three points not on the same line. For example Triangle.


Line and Plane Postulate

If two point line in a plane, then the entire line containing those two points line in that plane.


Intersection of Two Planes Postulate

If two plane intersect, then their INTERSECTION is a line.


Congruence of Segments Postulate

Congruence of segments is reflexive, symmetric and transitive.


Reflexive Property

a = a


Symmetric Property

if a = b then b = a


Transitive Property

if a = b and b = c, then a = c


Addition and Subtraction Property

a = b then a + c = b + c and
a  c = b  c 

Multiplication and Subtraction Property

if a = b then a x c = b x c and
a/c = b/c 

Substitution Property

if a = b then a may be replaced by b in any equation or expression.


Reflexive Angles

measure of angle 1 = measure of angle 1


Symmetric Angles

if measure of angle A = measure of anlge B then the measure of angle B = the measure of angle A


Transitive Angles

if the measure of angle 1 = the measure of agle 2 and the measure of angle 2 = the measure of angle 3, then the measure of angles 1 = measure of angles 3.


Ruler Postulate

Points on a line can be matched one to one with set of real numbers.


Protractor postulate

Rays from can be matched one for one with real numbers from 0 to 180 degrees.


Angle Addition Postulate

If B is in the interior of angle AOC then the measure of angle AOB + BOC = AOC


Linear Pair Postulate

If two anlges form a linear pair, then they are supplementary and their sum measures 180 degrees.


Midpoint Theorem

On a number line the corrinates of the midpoint of the segment with END points A and B is A + B /2.


Angles

Defined by two rays; extend indefinitely in two directions; share a common end point; seperate a plane into three parts(angle, interior, exterior); measured in degrees.


Math Alert

a linear pair ALWAYS forms supplementary angles BUT supplemeentary angles do NOT ALWAYS form a linear pair.
