5 Basic Postulates of Undefined Terms

Question Answer
a. Point - Existence Postulatespace contains at least four non-coplanar, noncollinear points
b. Point - Existence Postulatea plane contains at least three noncollinear points
c. Point - Existence Postulatea line contains at least two points
Line Postulatefor any two points there is exactly one line that contains both points
Plane Postulateany three noncollinear points lie in exactly one plane
Flat Plane Postulateif two parts are contained in the plane, then the line joining these points are contained in the plane
Plane Intersection Postulateif two planes intersect, then their intersection is a line
