Mathematics

_______ is another name for postulate.


ANSWER

axiom


SOLUTION
A postulate is a statement that is accepted without proof. Axiom is another name for a postulate. 

For example, if you know that Pam is five feet tall and all her siblings are taller than her, you would believe her if she said that all of her siblings are at least five foot one. Pam just stated a postulate, and you just accepted it without grabbing a tape measure to verify the height of her siblings.
