Postulate 2.8 (Ruler Postulate)
The points on any line or line segment can be paired with real numbers so that, given any two points A and B on a line, A corresponds to zero, and B corresponds to a positive real number.
Basically, all segments have a measure.
Postulate 2.9 (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.
A B C
Theorem 2.2 (Segment Congruence)
Congruence of segments is reflexive, symmetric, and transitive.
Reflexive Property: AB AB
Symmetric Property: If AB CD, then CD AB.
Transitive Property: If AB CD and CD EF, then AB EF.
