Lara wrote the statements shown in the chart.

Statement One: If two lines intersect, then they intersect at exactly one point

Statement Two: In a right triangle, the square of the length of the hypotenuse is equal to the sum of the squares of the length of the legs.

Which option best classifies Lara’s statements?

Answer
A: Statement 1 is a postulate and Statement 2 is a theorem.
B: Statement 1 is a theorem and Statement 2 is a postulate
C: Statement 1 and Statement 2 are theorems because they can be proved.
D: Statement 1 and Statement 2 are postulates because they are true facts.
