Question

# Which postulate will you use to prove that PR = PQ + QR?

- Ruler postulate
- Segment addition postulate
- Division property
- Distributive property

Hint:

### Try to recall definition of postulates/properties given in options.

## The correct answer is: Segment addition postulate

### SOL – Option (b)

Segment addition postulate – It states that if a line segment has two endpoints, A and C, a third point B lies on the line segment AC if and only if this equation AB + BC = AC

Since in figure given above, line segment has two end points namely P and R and third point Q lies on the line segment PR Þ PR = PQ + QR
