Euclid stated that all right angles are equal to one another in the form of a/an ..........

Postulate

SOLUTION
Postulates

1. A straight line may be drawn from any point to any other point.

2. A terminated line (line segment) can be produced indefinitely.
3. A circle may be described with any centre and any radius.

4. All right angles are equal to one another.

5. If a straight line falling on two straight lines makes the interior angles on the same

side of it, taken together less than two right angles, then the the two straight lines if

produced indefinitely, meet on that side on which the sum of angles is taken together

less than two right angles.

Euclid used the term postulate for the assumptions that were specific to geometry

and otherwise called axioms. A theorem is a mathematical statement whose truth

has been logically established.
