abdul_shabeerBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Is it composed of many points?
 one year ago

lgbasalloteBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
here's an example of a plane dw:1347602928018:dw
 one year ago

lgbasalloteBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
here's another one that im sure you're familiar of dw:1347602961138:dw what do you notice?
 one year ago

abdul_shabeerBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Is plane composed of points?
 one year ago

lgbasalloteBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
yes...in a sense...it is
 one year ago

lgbasalloteBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
however, the more exact way of defining it is that it is composed of lines

A plane has area?
 one year ago

lgbasalloteBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
area, perimeter, length, width, etc.
 one year ago

abdul_shabeerBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Which means a point has area...
 one year ago

abdul_shabeerBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Then how does a plane have area?
 one year ago

lgbasalloteBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
do you know what "area" is?
 one year ago

lgbasalloteBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
dw:1347603254688:dw that is the area...it is the amount of space *covered* by a *closed figure*
 one year ago

lgbasalloteBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
a point is NOT a closed figure
 one year ago

abdul_shabeerBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Then how does collection of points make a plane?
 one year ago

lgbasalloteBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
collection of points => line collection of lines => plane
 one year ago

abdul_shabeerBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Line is collection of points, therefore a plane is a collection of points.
 one year ago

lgbasalloteBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
yes..now you got it
 one year ago

abdul_shabeerBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
That's not my doubt..
 one year ago

abdul_shabeerBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
A plane is collection of lines or points and a plane has area. Which means a point should have area.

jreemBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
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.
 one year ago

lgbasalloteBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
area only happens to twodimensional figures
 one year ago

lgbasalloteBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
area = length x width <==two dimensions
 one year ago

lgbasalloteBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
a point is dimensionless
 one year ago

abdul_shabeerBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Then why does a plane have area?
 one year ago

lgbasalloteBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
because a plane is two dimensional
 one year ago

ChlorophyllBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
A plane is made up from at least 2 crossed lines!
 one year ago

abdul_shabeerBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
How can we make two dimension from zero dimension?
 one year ago

lgbasalloteBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
plane = twodimensional area = twodimensional therefore... plane has area point = 0 dimenison area = two dimension therefore...point does NOT have area
 one year ago

lgbasalloteBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
@abdul_shabeer can you not make 1 out of 0?
 one year ago

lgbasalloteBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
all you have to do is add
 one year ago

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

abdul_shabeerBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
@jreem What is that distance composed of?
 one year ago

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

DirectrixBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
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.
