line intersectionsThis question has thrown me off as I realize that lines intersect at only one point. #2 20130516 02:05:43
Re: line intersectionsHi; In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #3 20130516 02:54:09
Re: line intersectionsI guess that makes sense but if it is the same line, it is not intersecting with itself is it? This is where I am confused... #4 20130516 03:00:56
Re: line intersectionsThe intersection of the set of all the points of a line with itself is the line. But that is not a choice. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #6 20130516 07:47:30
