1. Points, Lines, and Planes GEOMETRY LESSON 1-2 (For help, go to the Skills Handbook, page 722.) 1.y = x + 5 2.y = 2x – 4  3.y = 2x y = –x + 7 y = 4x – 10 y = –x + 15 4. Copy the diagram of the four points A, B, C, and D. Draw as many different lines as you can to connect pairs of points. Solve each system of equations. 1-2

2. Solutions 1. By substitution, x + 5 = –x + 7; adding x – 5 to both sides results in 2x = 2; dividing both sides by 2 results in x = 1. Since x = 1, y = (1) + 5 = 6. (x, y) = (1, 6) 2. By substitution, 2x – 4 = 4x – 10; adding –4x + 4 to both sides results in –2x = –6; dividing both sides by –2 results in x = 3. Since x = 3, y = 2(3) – 4 = 6 – 4 = 2. (x, y) = (3, 2) 3. By substitution, 2x = –x + 15; adding x to both sides results in 3x = 15; dividing both sides by 3 results in x = 5. Since x = 5, y = 2(5) = 10. (x, y) = (5, 10) 4. The 6 different lines are AB, AC, AD, BC, BD, and CD. Points, Lines, and Planes GEOMETRY LESSON 1-2 1-2

3. Patterns and Inductive Reasoning GEOMETRY LESSON 1-1 Definitions Point -A single location in space -Indicated by an “infinitely small” dot -Named by a capital letter Example: Good to Know: -A geometric figure is a set of points -Space is defined as the set of all points 1-1

4. Patterns and Inductive Reasoning GEOMETRY LESSON 1-1 Definitions Line -A series of points that extend infinitely in two opposite directions -Drawn with an arrow at each end, indicating that it extends indefintely Example: 1-1

5. Patterns and Inductive Reasoning GEOMETRY LESSON 1-1 Definitions Line A line can be named either one of two ways: 1. A line can be named by placing the line symbol ( ) over any two points that fall on the line. Example: 1-1

6. Patterns and Inductive Reasoning GEOMETRY LESSON 1-1 Definitions Line A line can be named either one of two ways: 2. A line can be named with a single, lowercase letter Example: 1-1

7. Patterns and Inductive Reasoning GEOMETRY LESSON 1-1 Definitions Collinear points -All points that lie on the same line are said to be collinear Example: • Points C, A and B are collinear • Points C, A and D are NOT collinear • Are points D, B and E collinear? • YES! 1-1

8. In the figure below, name three points that are collinear and three points that are not collinear. Points Y, Z, and W lie on a line, so they are collinear. Points, Lines, and Planes GEOMETRY LESSON 1-2 Any other set of three points do not lie on a line, so no other set of three points is collinear. For example, X, Y, and Z and X, W, and Z form triangles and are not collinear. 1-2

9. Patterns and Inductive Reasoning GEOMETRY LESSON 1-1 Definitions Planes -A flat surface with no thickness -Comprised of an infinite number of lines -Extends without end in the direction of all of its lines Example: 1-1

10. Patterns and Inductive Reasoning GEOMETRY LESSON 1-1 Definitions Planes A plane can be named in either of two ways: 1. A single capital letter Example: 1-1

11. Patterns and Inductive Reasoning GEOMETRY LESSON 1-1 Definitions Planes A plane can be named in either of two ways: 2. the combination of three of its non-collinear points Example: 1-1

12. Name the plane shown in two different ways. Points, Lines, and Planes GEOMETRY LESSON 1-2 You can name a plane using any three or more points on that plane that are not collinear. Some possible names for the plane shown are the following: plane RST plane RSU plane RTU plane STU plane RSTU 1-2

13. Patterns and Inductive Reasoning GEOMETRY LESSON 1-1 Definitions Coplanar Points and lines on the same plane are said to be coplanar -line b, line c, and point K are coplanar -line a and line b are NOT coplanar -line a and point K are coplanar, but not on the plane shown! 1-1

14. Use the diagram below. What is the intersection of plane HGC and plane AED? The back and left faces of the cube intersect at HD. Planes HGC and AED intersect vertically at HD. Points, Lines, and Planes GEOMETRY LESSON 1-2 As you look at the cube, the front face is on plane AEFB, the back face is on plane HGC, and the left face is on plane AED. 1-2

15. Shade the plane that contains X, Y, and Z. Points X, Y, and Z are the vertices of one of the four triangular faces of the pyramid. To shade the plane, shade the interior of the triangle formed by X, Y, and Z. Points, Lines, and Planes GEOMETRY LESSON 1-2 1-2

16. Patterns and Inductive Reasoning GEOMETRY LESSON 1-1 Postulates Postulate 1-1: Through any two points, there is exactly ONE line Postulate 1-2: If two lines intersect, then they intersect in exactly ONE point. Postulate 1-3: If two planes intersect, then they intersect in exactly ONE line. Postulate 1-4 Through any three noncollinear points, there is exactly one plane. 1-1

The ends of the legs of the tripod represent three noncollinear points, so they rest in one plane. Therefore, the tripod won’t wobble. 46.

The distress signal is on both lines and, by Post. 1-2, there can be only one distress signal. 81.a. Since the plane is flat, the line would have to curve so as to contain the 2 points and not lie in the plane; but lines are straight. b. One plane; Points A, B, and C are noncollinear. By Post. 1-4, they are coplanar. Then, by part (a), AB and BC are coplanar. 82. 1 Points, Lines, and Planes GEOMETRY LESSON 1-2 1-2
