    collection of points => line collection of lines => plane

    Line is collection of points, therefore a plane is a collection of points.

    A plane is collection of lines or points and a plane has area. Which means a point should have area.

    A geometric object defined by three points not on the same line. Any more than three points and they do not necessarily define a plane. A point has zero length and zero area.

    because a plane is two dimensional

    plane = two-dimensional area = two-dimensional therefore... plane has area point = 0 dimenison area = two dimension therefore...point does NOT have area

    Any two points, both dimension 0, have a distance between them, which is dimension 1. Extrapolate to higher dimensions.

    Points. An infinity of them. That's how we can add zero's and get to a non-zero number.

    Plane is one of at least 3 *undefined* terms in Euclidean Geometry. Think of it as a flat surface extending infinitely far. A plane has no length, width, perimeter, area or depth. It contains lines, points, rays, and so forth.
