Gina wrote the following statements. Statement 1: If two points lie in a plane, then the line joining them lies in that plane. Statement 2: If two lines intersect in one point, then exactly one plane contains both lines. Which of these options is correct? Statement 1 represents a theorem and Statement 2 represents a postulate. Statement 1 represents a definition and Statement 2 represents a postulate. Statement 1 represents a postulate and Statement 2 represents a theorem. Statement 1 represents a definition and Statement 2 represents a theorem.

Well.... it's been a while since I did this stuff, lol. I think it's safe to rule out definition. Neither of them really defines anything.

According to that link: Postulate 5: If two points lie in a plane, then the line joining them lies in that plane. Theorem 3: If two lines intersect, then exactly one plane contains both lines.

So it's C! so yea

because statement 1 is a postulate and statement 2 is a theorem

Yes, I think so. :) the "exactly one plane" thing sounds more Theorem-y to me anyway. lol :)
