Let $a$ and $b$ be real numbers where $0 < a< b<180$. Let $A$, $B$, $D$ be points so $A$-$B$-$D$.
Prove there exists a triangle $ABC$ where measure of angle $CAB$ is $a$ and measure of angle $CBD$ is $b$.
How do I prove part 1 without making use of the Euclidean Parallel Postulate?
I know that d(A,B)+d(B,D)= d(A,D) due to definition of betweenness so it is on a straight line. To establish the side of AC, I could construct a ray AC by Angle Construction Postulate on a half plane on the same side of ray AB that makes angle $a$ and perhaps draw a line parallel to ray AC to show that angle is B is greater than angle A. I'm not sure how to show this is a triangle.
Should I show the overlap of the half planes using definition for interior in order to show that or prove that the triangle exists? Or is just the definition of the interior of any angle enough to show that the triangle exists?
