The difference between defined and undefined terms is that the defined terms can be combined with each other and with undefined terms to define still more terms. These are undefined terms: 1.plane 2.point 3.line These are defined terms: 1.ray 2.union of sets 3.space 4.subset 5.set 6.proper subset 7.opposite rays 8.postulate 9.betweenness of points 10.bisector of a segment 11.midpoint of a segment 12.line segment 13.lenght of a segment 14.collinear points 15.complement of a set 16.coplanar points 17.disjoint sets 18.element 19.empy set 20.finite set 21.geometry 22.infinite set 23.intersection of sets
