It's possible, but for any three lines in the same plane, there could be ether one point of intersection (unlikely) or three (more probably).

Does three points intersect at a single point?

No, only three lines can intersect at a single point.

Can three lines intersect in only one point?

Any number of lines can intersect all at the same point. Think of a circle. Now think of all of its diameters.

When two lines intersect do they intersect in different ponts?

No, two straight lines can intersect at only one point and that is their point of intersection.

Can 3 lines intersect at only 1 point?

Assuming that the none of the lines are parallel, they can intersect (pairwise) at three points. Otherwise, the question is tautological.

When two lines intersect they intersect in one and only one?


Three lines can intersect in only two points?

This is true. If three straight lines are drawn, they can only intersect at two points. That is, each line will only intersect with another once.

Do perpendicular lines intersect in at least two points?

Perpendicular lines intersect at one point only.

How many line can intersect a point?

A point can be intersected by infinitely many lines. Two points intersect in only one line. Three points either intersect in a line or not at all. This is only considering two dimensions.

Can 3 lines only intersect in only 1 point that?

No, that is not true.

In geometry what do you call the intersection among the altitude of a triangle?

Such a point is called the orthocenter. Even the fact that all three altitudes intersect at a point is quite interesting because only two lines are guaranteed to intersect at a point, but we have three.

Can two lines intersect at only one point?


Two lines intersect in more than one point?

In Euclidean plane geometry two infinitely long straight lines intersect at only one point
