# What is an example of an intersection in math?

The intersection of two or more mathematical objects is the set of all points that are common to all of them.

In set theory, that would be the elements in common. In geometry, it would be the set of all points in common. For example, the intersection of two different planes is a line; the intersection of a plane and a cone are the conic sections: circle, ellipse, parabola and hyperbola.

## Related Questions My teacher made us do algebraic math problems that involved intersection triangles. It is the Intersection of 2 or more lines. Such as in the letter V, the vertex is the point at the bottom when the 2 lines meet.  Crossing, the same meaning that it has generally. The basic operations are union and intersection. The basic operations are union, intersection and complement. An intersection is where two lines cross each other: X is an example. Example sentence - The accident occurred at the intersection when the roads were covered with snow. where two or more lines or other functions meet at a point. The main set operations are: union, intersection and complement.  The place where two (or more) roads cross each other is an intersection. It is used in set theory to indicate intersection. The intersection of two sets, A and B, is the set of all elements that are in A as well as in B. edges are the intersection of faces in a three dimentional figure:The cube has 12 edges.  yes. however make sure to check your state's specific definition of intersection. For example in Arizona the intersection is an extension of the curb lines. This is a much smaller area then in California where an intersection is defined by the crosswalk lines. It means meet. Point of intersection is the point where shapes or lines meet. With regard to sets, the intersection of two sets is the set of elements that are common to both sets. For example, the intersection of the set of the first five whole numbers and the set of the first five odd numbers is the set of the first three odd numbers. This is expressed as {1, 2, 3, 4, 5} &cap; {1, 3, 5, 7, 9} = {1, 3, 5} The intersection meets at a cell. For example, the first cell in the top left-hand corner is A1.  In geometric terms, one line is said to be perpendicular to another when their angle of intersection is 90&deg; It is the intersection point of where the x-axis and y-axis meet on a graph. The coordinates are (0, 0) It is a point where one line (straight or curved) meets another line or a non-coplanar surface. The place where two points meet is known as an intersection in math. is the intersection of two sets A and B that contain all elements of B that also belong to A A 4 way intersection is an example of perpendicular lines. A cross in a church is an example of perpendicular lines.
