N/A

If two planes intersect, then their intersection is a line.


Linear Pair Postulate

If two angles form a linear pair, then they are supplementary.


Parallel Postulate

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


Perpendicular Postulate

If there is a line and a point not on the line, then there is exactly one line through the point perpendicular to the given line.


Corresponding Angles Postulate

AnglesSideAngle Congruence Postulate

If two angles and the included side of one triangle are congruent to two angles and the included side of a second triangle, then the two triangles are congruent.


Area of a Square Postulate

The area of a square is the square of the length of its side, or A=s².


Area Congruence Postulate

If two polygons are congruent,then they have the same area.


Area Addition Postulate

The area of a region is the sum of the areas of its nonoverlapping parts.


AngleAngle Similarity Postulate

If two angles of one triangle are congruent to two angles of another triangle, then the two triangles are similar.


Arc Addition Postulate

The measure of an arc formed by two adjacent arcs is the sum of the measures of the two arcs.


Volume of a Cube

The volume of a cube is the cube of the length of its side.


Volume Congruence Postulate
