    What's your idea about it. Just wondering before we discuss.

    i belive yes, in my mind and how im seeing it play out in my brain it looks like there are two sperate planes

    Okay. I'll draw two intersecting lines and make a case for exactly one plane. Hold on.

    You did not make a fool of yourself. And, my argument may be incorrect.

    No, cause two intersecting lines can never create 2 different planes

    Here's my thinking: Line XY intersects line ZX at point X. Points X, Y, and Z are not on the same line. They are non-collinear points. By the axioms, three non-collinear points determine a unique plane. Therefore, exactly one plane contains the two intersecting lines.

    What do you think? Now, if we ask if 3 intersecting planes lie in exactly one plane - well, that's a different story.

    I use pencils and pens or whatever is handy. Visualization is so important in Geometry.

    Hey what about this: Do a line and a point not on the line lie in exactly one plane?
