If B is between A and C, then AB+BC=AC

angle addition postulate

Angles can be added together if they are adjacent

, If P is in the interior of <RST, then m<RSP + m<PST = m<RST

, If P is in the interior of <RST, then m<RSP + m<PST = m<RST

pythagorean theorem

a²+b²=c²

linear pair theorem

if two angles form a linear pair, then they are supplementary

congruent supplements theorem

if two angles are supplementary to the same angle (or to congruent angles) then they are congruent

right angle congruence theorem

all right angles are congruent

congruent complements theorem

If two angles are complements of the same angle (or of congruent angles), then the two angles are congruent.
