Introduction toEuclid’s Geometry

Question 1:

Exercise 3A

A theorem is a statement that requires a proof. Whereas, a basic fact which is taken for granted, without proof, is called an axiom.

Example of Theorem: Pythagoras Theorem

Example of axiom: A unique line can be drawn through any two points.

Question 2:

  1. Line segment: The straight path between two points is called a line segment.
  2. Ray: A line segment when extended indefinitely in one direction is called a ray.
  3. Intersecting Lines: Two lines meeting at a common point are called intersecting lines, i.e., they have a common point.
  4. Parallel Lines: Two lines in a plane are said to be parallel, if they have no common point, i.e., they do not meet at all.
  5. Half-line: A ray without its initial point is called a half-line.
  6. Concurrent lines: Three or more lines are said to be concurrent, if they intersect at the same point.
  7. Collinear points: Three or more than three points are said to be collinear, if they lie on the same line.
  8. Plane: A plane is a surface such that every point of the line joining any two points on it, lies on it.

Question 3:

  1. Six points: A,B,C,D,E,F
  2. Five line segments: , , , ,
