7.  Why is Axiom 5, in the list of Euclid’s axioms, considered a ‘universal truth’? (Note that the question is not about the fifth postulate.)

Answers (1)

Axiom 5 states that the whole is greater than the part.
Lets take A = x + y + z
where A , x , y , z all are positive numbers
Now, we can clearly see that A > x , A > y , A > z 
Hence, by this we can say that the whole (A) is greater than the parts. (x , y , z)
