unlike postulates, theorems must be proved to be accepted as _.
true

ray that divides an angle into 2 congruent angles
angle bisector

to divide into 2 congruent parts
Bisect

The measurement of <RST=22 and M<TSU<69. Find m<RSU. (scratch paper)
91 degrees

What do you do in percent problems of postulate 4?
1) measure the angle with protractor. 2) put that # over the entire degrees of the circle. 3)multiply that by the # they give you

What postulate is it when if point D is in the interior of <ABC then m<ABD+m<DBC=m<ABC
Postulate 4: The angle addition postulate

what degrees is a straight angle?
180

what degrees is an obtuse?
more than 90, less than 180

what degrees is an acute angle?
less than 90

What degrees is a right angle?
90

What postulate is it when it says given a point X on PR, consider rays XP and XR as well as all the other rays that can be drawn with X as an endpoint on one side of PR. These rays can be paired with the real numbers 0180 such that: Xp is paired with 0and XR is paired with 180. If XA is paired with a C and XB is paired with an D then M<axb=1cd1
postulate 3: protractor postulate

a tool used to measure angles
protractor

what are the sides of the angles called?
rays

the common endpoint in the angle
vertex

a figure formed by 2 rays with a common endpoint
angle

how is a ray named?
by its endpoint and any other point on the ray

a part of a line that starts at an endpoint and extends infinitely in one direction
ray

Whats the formula for midpoint?
AB+BC=AC

the point that divides the segment into 2 congruent parts
Midpoint

What postulate is it when B is btween A and C then AB+BC=AC
Postulate 2: Segment addition postulate

Which postulate is it when the points on a line can be paired in one to one correspondence with the real #s such that: 1) any 2 given points can have coordinates 0 and 1 and 2) the distance btween 2 points is the absolute value of the difference of their coordinates?
postulate 1: the ruler postulate

Whats the formula for distance?
Absolute value of (point A point B)

the measure of the segment connecting 2 points. Always positive #
distance

AB ~= CD and CD ~= EF then AB ~= EF
