• Vocabulary 6. Paragraph Proof: When a paragraph is written to logically explain why a given conjecture is true 7. Informal Proof: Another name for a paragraph proof as it allows for free writing to provide the logical explanationMonday, November 7, 2011
• Harkening back to Chapter 1 Old ideas about points, lines, and planes are now postulates!Monday, November 7, 2011

• Example 1 Determine whether the statement is always, sometimes, or never true. a. Points E and F are contained by exactly one line. Always true Only one line can be drawn through any two points b. There is exactly one plane that contains points A, B, and C. Sometimes true If the three points are collinear, then an inﬁnite numberplanes can be drawn. If they are noncollinear, then it is true.Monday, November 7, 2011

• Example 2 Given that AC intersects CD, write a paragraph proof to show that A, C, and D determine a plane.Monday, November 7, 2011
• Example 2 Given that AC intersects CD, write a paragraph proof to show that A, C, and D determine a plane. Since the two lines intersect, they must intersect at point C as two lines intersect in exactly one point.Monday, November 7, 2011
• Example 2 Given that AC intersects CD, write a paragraph proof to show that A, C, and D determine a plane. Since the two lines intersect, they must intersect at point C as two lines intersect in exactly one point. Points A and D are on different lines, so A, C, and D are noncollinear.Monday, November 7, 2011

Since the two lines intersect, they must intersect at point C as two lines intersect in exactly one point. Points A and D are on different lines, so A, C, and D are noncollinear. Since three noncollinear points determine exactly one plane, points A, C, and D determine a plane.Monday, November 7, 2011
