the world is an oval so ab make a line so if you dived what you said by 2 it equals 3

If point b is in between points a and c, then ab +bc= ac by the segment addition postulate...dont know if that was what you were looking for... but that is how i percieved that qustion.

The answer will depend on what the shape is!

midpoint postulate

Side Angle Side postulate.

No, because Segment Construction Postulate may be use in any rays,there is exactly one point at a given distance from the end of the ray and in Segment Addition Postulate is is you may add only the Lines.

Both state that the whole is equal to the sum of the component parts.

Segment position postulate

the world is an oval so ab make a line so if you dived what you said by 2 it equals 3

The postulate states that given any straight line segment, a circle can be drawn having the segment as radius and one endpoint as centre. I am not sure that there is more information than that!

A straight line segment can be drawn joining any two points.

Some branches of quantum physics postulate properties and phenomena that are not observed in classical physics. The Addition Postulate is one of several in geometry that are always accepted as true and correct.

Euclid's second postulate allows that line segment to be extended farther in that same direction, so that it can reach any required distance. This could result in an infinitely long line.

on any ray,there is exactly one point at a given distance from the endpoint of the ray

Euclid's first four postulates are:A straight line segment can be drawn joining any two points.Any straight line segment can be extended indefinitely in a straight line.Given any straight line segment, a circle can be drawn havibg the segment as radius and one endpoint as centre.All right angles are congruent. He also had the fifth postulate, equivalent to the parallel postulate. There are various equivalent versions.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.The fifth postulate cannot be proven and, in fact, it is now known that it cannot be proven and that there are many internally-consistent geometries in which the negations of this postulate are true.
