### Can three points determined a plane?

Yes, three points determine a plane unless they are in a straight line. A plane is two dimensions a line is only one. You need a third point(not in the line) to define a plane.

### Point is to line as line is to?

Plane. A point has no dimension, a line has one dimension, and a plane has two dimensions.

### What are the 3 undefined terms in geometry?

point, line and plane

### What is the intersection of a plane and a line not on the plane?

point * * * * * or, nothing (if the line is parallel to the plane).

A ray

### How would the point where a ray intersects a three dimensional triangular plane be determined?

Presumably, the "three dimensional triangular plane" is actually a two dimensional plane which is "tilted" with respect to the axes. The point of intersection is simply the coordinates of the solution to the simultaneous equations for the line and the plane.

A plane.

### where does a plane intersect in geometry?

A plane intersects a line at a point, and i plane intersects another plane at a line.

### When does a plane and line intersect at one point?

When the line is inclined to the plane. That is, it is not in the plane nor is it parallel to it.

### What do you find at the intersection of a plane an a line?

Unless the line is a subset of the plane, the intersection is a point.
