Postulate 1: Ruler Postulate

The points on aline can be matched one to one with the real numbers. The real number that corresponds to a point in the coordinate of the point. This distance between points A and B, written as AB, is the absolute vallue of the difference between A and B.


Postulate 2: Segment Addition Postulate

If B is between A and C, then AB+BC=Ac. If AB+BC=Ac, the B is between A and B.


Postulate 3: Protractor Postulate

Consider point A on one side of lineOB. THe rays of the form rayOA can be matched one ot one with the real numbers from 0 to 180. THe measure of angleAOB is equal to the absolute value of the difference between the real numbers for rayOA and rayOB.


Postulate 4: Angle Addition Postulate

If P is in the interior of angleRST, then mangleRSP+manglePST=mangleRST.


Postulate 5:

Through any two points, there exists exactly one line.


Postulate 6:

A line contains atleast 2 points.


Postulate 7:

If 2 lines intersect, then their intersection is exactly one point.


Postulate 8:

Through any 3 noncollinear points, there exists exactly one plane.


Postulate 9:

A plane contains atleast 3 noncollinear points.


Postulate 10:

If two points lie on a plane, then the line containing them lies in the plane.


Postulate 11:

The intersection of two planes is exactly one line.


Postulate 12: Linear Pair Postulate

If two angle sform a linear pair, then they are supplementary.


Postulate 13: Parallel Postulate

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


Postulate 14: Perpendicular Postulate

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