It is a Geometry Theorem. "A line and a point not on the line lie in exactly one place" means what it says.

A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

A line and a point not on the line lie in exactly one plane?


Do a line and a point not on that line lie in one and only one plane?

Yes because a line can lie in many planes so one we add one point not on that line, we define a unique plane.

Does a congruent term describe a line and a point that lie in the same plane?

No, it does not.

If points of a line lie on a plane does the whole line lie on the plane?


A line and two points are guaranteed to be coplanar if?

they lie in the same plane

Describe the ideas of point line and plane?

A point is a coordinate on an axis. A line is the connection between two points. A plane is the object of perspective that points and lines lie on.

Can a line lie on a plane?

A straight line MUST lie in a plane. A curved line may or may not.

What line does the point (-16) lie on?

If you mean the point of (-1, 6) then it lies in the 2nd quadrant on the Cartesian plane

Lines on a hyperbolic plane are considered to be?

Hyperbolic geometry is a beautiful example of non-Euclidean geometry. One feature of Euclidean geometry is the parallel postulate. This says that give a line and a point not on that line, there is exactly one line going through the point which is parallel to the line. (That is to say, that does NOT intersect the line) This does not hold in the hyperbolic plane where we can have many lines through a point parallel to a line. But then we must wonder, what do lines look like in the hyperbolic plane? Lines in the hyperbolic plane will either appear as lines perpendicular to the edge of the half-plane or as circles whose centers lie on the edge of the half-plane

Does a line lie in only one plane?

No. A line can lie in many planes. A plane can be defined by three non-linear points. Since a line is defined by only two points, we need another point. (Note that point C alone, or line AB alone belong to an infinite number of planes.)

If two lines lie in the same plane and have more than on point in common they must be?

the same line

Do three lines that intersect at the same point have to be at the same plane?

No they can be Collinear - Points that lie on the same line.
