6
Postulate 8
 
if two points are in a plane, then the line that contains the points is in that plane.
7
Postulate 9
 
If two points intersect, their intersection is a line.
8
Theorem 1-1

9
Theorem 1-2
 
Through a line and a point not in the line there is exactly one plane.

11
Addition Property
 
If a = b, and c = d then a + c = b +d
12
Subtraction Property
 
If a = b and c = d then a - c = b - d
13
Multiplication Property
 
If a = b, then ca =cb
14
Division Property
 
If a = b, then a/c = b/c
15
Substitution Property
 
if a = b, then a or b can be substituted for the other in any equation or inequality.

Reflexive Property
 
a = a
17
Symmetric Property
 
If a = b, then b = a.
18
Transitive Property
