What is the difference between axiom and postulate?

Asked by abinash.gupta003 | 6th Jul, 2016, 06:02: PM

Expert Answer:

An axiom is a self-evident proposition, requiring no formal demonstration to prove its truth, but received and accepted as soon as mentioned.
A postulate is a claim to be taken for granted.
