what is the diffwereence between a postulate and theorom

  • geometry -

    postulates are assumed to be true and we need not prove them. They provide the starting point for the proof of a theorem. A theorem is a proposition that can be deduced from postulates. We make a series of logical arguments using these postulates to prove a theorem.
