a) Can you give me an example of a *postulate*? And, can a

*postulate* be proven? If not, then how is it different from a

*definition*? You’ll recall a defintion cannot be proven; it is just accepted.

b) Side Splitting Theorem: IIRC, this is supposed to work only for right triangles. However, I saw an SAT question using similar triangles (which were not two right triangles). If you can picture two similar triangles drawn such that they share one common leg, the problem was set up like a side-splitting problem. So, my question is: Does the side-splitting theorem apply to ALL similar triangles?

Thanks, it’s been awhile…
