### plane

an undefined term; extends without ending; no thickness; need at least 3 non collinear points to draw a plane

### unnamed postulate/theorem #5

if 2 points are on a plane then the line containing those points is also on the plane

an example used to prove a statement is false (the hypothesis is true but the statement is false) (only takes 1 counter example to prove a statement false)

( A_______M_______B) )if m is midpoint of AB then AM=1/2 AB and MB=1/2 AB)

### convex polygon

a polygon such that NO line containing a side of the polygon contains a point in the interior of the polygon OR a polygon is convex if NO diagonal contains points outside the polygon

(n-2)180

(n= # of sides in the polygon)

### inductive reasoning

a kind of reasoning in which the conclusion is based on several past observations (conclusion is probably true but not necessarily true)
