Why is axiom 5, in the list of Euclid axiom, considered a universal truth?
Asked by shaurabh42000 | 10th Sep, 2019, 07:39: AM
Euclid's axiom 5 states that the whole is greater than the part.
This statement/axiom is known as a universal truth because it holds true in any field, and not just in the field of mathematics.
