## Euclid's postulatesThe five postulates, which together with 23 definitions and five "common notions" form the basis of Euclid's great work on geometry, Elements. The postulates are:
- A straight line may be drawn from any one point to any other point.
- A finite straight line may be produced to any length in a straight line.
- A circle may be described with any center at any distance from that center.
- All right angles are equal.
- If a straight line meets two other lines, so as to make the two interior angles on one side of it together less than two right angles, the other straight lines will meet if produced on that side on which the angles are less than two right angles.
