##### Euclid’s Definitions
• Point: A Point is that which has no part.
• Line: A line is breadth less length.
• Straight Line: A straight line is a line which lies evenly with the points on itself.
• Surface: A surface is that which contain length and breadth only.
• Plane Surface: A plane surface is a surface which lies evenly with the straight lines on itself. Two distinct lines cannot have more than one point in common.
• Axiom or Postulates: Axiom or Postulates are the assumptions which are obvious universal truths. They are not proved.
• Theorems: Theorems are statements which are proved using definitions, axioms, previously proved statements and deductive reasoning.
