## What is the ruler postulate?

Ruler Postulate: The points on a line can be matched one to one with the REAL numbers. The REAL number that corresponds to a point is the COORDINATE of the point. The DISTANCE between points A and B, written as AB, is the absolute value of the difference of the coordinates of A and B.

## How do you write a postulate?

If you have a line segment with endpoints A and B, and point C is between points A and B, then AC + CB = AB. The Angle Addition Postulate: This postulates states that if you divide one angle into two smaller angles, then the sum of those two angles must be equal to the measure of the original angle.

**What is the protractor postulate?**

Postulate 7 (The Protractor Postulate) – In a plane, any two opposite rays can be paired with the real numbers 0 and 180, and any other ray above that line with that common endpoint can be paired with any other real number between 0 and 180 (just like a protractor).

**What is the angle addition postulate?**

The angle addition postulate in geometry states that if we place two or more angles side by side such that they share a common vertex and a common arm between each pair of angles, then the sum of those angles will be equal to the total sum of the resulting angle.

### How do you write a segment addition postulate?

Segment Addition Postulate Examples It can be written mathematically as AB + BC = AC. Also, B is the mid-point of AC. It implies AB = BC.

### What is 1st postulate?

The first postulate of special relativity is the idea that the laws of physics are the same and can be stated in their simplest form in all inertial frames of reference. The second postulate of special relativity is the idea that the speed of light c is a constant, independent of the relative motion of the source.

**What is the ARC addition postulate?**

Arc Addition Postulate The measure of the arc formed by two adjacent arcs is the sum of the measures of the two arcs.

**What do Euclid’s postulates mean?**

If two lines are drawn which intersect a third in such a way that the sum of the inner angles on one side is less than two right angles, then the two lines inevitably must intersect each other on that side if extended far enough. This postulate is equivalent to what is known as the parallel postulate.

#### What is the substitution postulate?

Substitution Postulate: A quantity may be substituted for its equal in any expression. Since the sum of 3 and 8 are both 8, we can substitute each expression with 8 and they will still equal to one another.
