Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0dw:1347603254688:dw that is the area...it is the amount of space *covered* by a *closed figure*

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0collection of points => line collection of lines => plane

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Line is collection of points, therefore a plane is a collection of points.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0A plane is collection of lines or points and a plane has area. Which means a point should have area.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0A 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Then why does a plane have area?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0because a plane is two dimensional

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0How can we make two dimension from zero dimension?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0plane = twodimensional area = twodimensional therefore... plane has area point = 0 dimenison area = two dimension therefore...point does NOT have area

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Any two points, both dimension 0, have a distance between them, which is dimension 1. Extrapolate to higher dimensions.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@jreem What is that distance composed of?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Points. An infinity of them. That's how we can add zero's and get to a nonzero number.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Plane 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.
