Ruler Postulate
the points on a line can be paired with all real numbers and the distance on the line is found by taking the absolute value of the difference of their coordinates.
Segment Addition Postulate
If B is between A and C, then AB + BC = AC. If AB + BC = AC, then B is between A and C.
Protractor Postulate
Given a strait angle rays can be paired with numbers from 0 to 180. the measure of an angle is the absolute value of the difference of the numbers paired with rays.
Angle Addition Postulate
If P is in the interior of RST, then mRST=mRSP+mPST
Post. 5
A line contains at least 2 points, a plane at least 3 non collinear points, and space at least 4 non coplanar points.
Line postulate
Through any two points there exists exactly one line.
plane postulate
7, Any 3 points are contained in at least one plane, and 3 non-collinear points determine a plane.
flat plane postulate
if two points lie in a plane, then the line containing those points lies in the plane
plane intersection postulate
9, if two planes intersect, then their intersection is a line
