Postulate 1
Ruler Postulate 
1) The points on a line can be paired with real numbers in such a way that any 2 points can have coordinates 0 and 1
2) Once a coordinate system has been chosen in this way, the distance between any 2 points equals the absolute value of the difference of their coordinates 

Postulate 2
Segment Addition Postulate 
If B is between A and C, then
AB + BC = AC 

Postulate 3
Protactor Postulate 
On line AB in a given plane, choose any point O between A&B. Consider ray OA&OB&all the rays that can be drawn from O on one side of line AB. These rays can be paired w/real numbers from 0 to 180 in such a way that:
a) Line OA is paired w/0 & line OB w/180 b) If ray OP is paired w/x and ray OP w/y, then m∠POQ = xy 

Postulate 4
Angle Addition Postulate 
If point B lies in interior of point AOC, then
m∠AOB + m∠BOC = m∠AOC If angle AOC is a straight angle and B is any point not on line AC, then m∠AOB + m∠BOC = 180 

Postulate 5

 line contains at least 2 points
 plane contains at least 3 points not all in one line  space contains at least 4 points not all in on plane 

Postulate 6

Through any 2 points there is exactly 1 line


Postulate 7

 through any 3 points there is at least 1 plane
 through any 3 noncollinear points there is exactly 1 plane 

Postulate 8

If 2 points are in a plane, then the line that contains those points is in that plane


Postulate 9

If 2 planes intersect, then their intersection is a line


Theorem 11

If 2 lines intersect, then they intersect at exactly 1 point


Theorem 12

Through a line and a point, there is exactly 1 plane


Theorem 13

If 2 lines intersect, exactly 1 plane contains the lines
