 principle of comparability Explanation:"Definition 4 as an axiom of comparability This definition is used repeatedly as a axiom for magnitudes rather than a definition. It is frequently invoked in this book, starting with proposition V.8 but also required for more fundamental properties, and elsewhere, such as the important proposition X.1. In the proofs of these propositions one magnitude is less than another, and it is asserted that some multiple of the smaller is greater than the larger. Euclid implicitly assumes that the magnitudes he discusses, except horn angles, are all comparable. Straight lines, rectilinear angles, plane figures, and solids are all comparable to any other of the same type. This principle of comparability should be explicit in order to justify the principle of comparability for magnitudes of these kinds. One solution is to make it a postulate that straight lines are comparable. From that postulate comparability of each of the other kinds of magnitudes could be proved."

principle of comparability

Explanation:
"Definition 4 as an axiom of comparability
This definition is used repeatedly as a axiom for magnitudes rather than a definition. It is frequently invoked in this book, starting with proposition V.8 but also required for more fundamental properties, and elsewhere, such as the important proposition X.1. In the proofs of these propositions one magnitude is less than another, and it is asserted that some multiple of the smaller is greater than the larger. Euclid implicitly assumes that the magnitudes he discusses, except horn angles, are all comparable. Straight lines, rectilinear angles, plane figures, and solids are all comparable to any other of the same type.
This principle of comparability should be explicit in order to justify the principle of comparability for magnitudes of these kinds. One solution is to make it a postulate that straight lines are comparable. From that postulate comparability of each of the other kinds of magnitudes could be proved."
