### Does a line go on forever in both directions?

In Euclidean geometry, yes.

### What is a characteristic of non-euclidean geometry?

One main characteristic of non-Euclidean geometry is hyperbolic geometry. The other is elliptic geometry. Non-Euclidean geometry is still closely related to Euclidean geometry.

### Famous geometers and their contributions in geometry?

Giovanni Ceva - Euclidean geometry Shiing-Shen Chern - differential geometry RenĂ© Descartes - invented… Full Answer

### What is the difference between Euclidean Geometry and non-Euclidean Geometry?

In Euclidean geometry parallel lines are always the same distance apart. In non-Euclidean geometry parallel lines are not what we think of a parallel. They curve away from or toward each other. Said another way, in Euclidean geometry parallel lines… Full Answer

### What are the similarities in non euclidean and euclidean geometry?

both the geometry are not related to the modern geometry

### Different types of geometry?

Euclidean geometry, non euclidean geometry. Plane geometry. Three dimensional geometry to name but a few

### What is equiform geometry?

The geometry of similarity in the Euclidean plane or Euclidean space.

### Does the Pythagorean theorem work with Euclidean and Hyperbolic geometry?

It works in Euclidean geometry, but not in hyperbolic.

### Is it true that the sum of three angles of any triangle is 180 in non euclidean geometry?

No. It is true in Euclidean geometry but not in non-Euclidean geometries.

true

### What are the names of Non Euclidean Geometries?

There are two non-Euclidean geometries: hyperbolic geometry and ellptic geometry.

### Where did the name euclidean geometry come from?

Euclidean geometry is a mathematical system attributed to the Greek mathematician Euclid of Alexandria.

true

### What has the author Richard L Faber written?

Richard L. Faber has written: 'Applied calculus' -- subject(s): Calculus 'Foundations of Euclidean and non-Euclidean geometry' -- subject(s): Geometry, Geometry, Non-Euclidean

### What is Non euclidean geometry?

Geometry that is not on a plane, like spherical geometry

### What are the names of Non-Euclidean Geometries?

Answer The two commonly mentioned non-Euclidean geometries are hyperbolic geometry and elliptic geometry. If one takes "non-Euclidean geometry" to mean a geometry satisfying all of Euclid's postulates but the parallel postulate, these are the two possible geometries.

### What are lines in geometry?

They are 1-dimensional objects in Euclidean space.

### Is it true that an obtuse triangle can have a right angle?

In Euclidean geometry, a triangle must be one of these: acute, obtuse, or right. Maybe there is a non-Euclidean geometry for which some obtuse triangles can contain a right angle, but it doesn't happen in Euclidean geometry.

### What are two types of Non-Euclidean Geometries?

The 2 types of non-Euclidean geometries are hyperbolic geometry and ellptic geometry.

No.

euclidean

### Give a brief history of euclidean geometry?

Euclid developed Euclidean geometry around 300 BC. I cannot get much briefer than that.

### Geometry is the focus of this course?

Euclidean Geometry if the focous of this course. -apex

### Can line segments have two midpoints?

not in euclidean geometry (I don't know about non-euclidean).

Euclid.

### Is there more than one kind of geometry?

There are different kinds of geometry including elementary geometry, Euclidean geometry, and Elliptic Geometry.

### Who discovered the circle?

Euclid discovered the circle and he named his geometry "Euclidean geometry "

### What geometry term starts with e?

elliptic - a kind of non-Euclidean geometry.

### Where do parallels meet?

In Euclidean geometry, parallels never meet. In other geometry, such as spherical geometry, this is not true.

### What has the author Harold Eichholtz Wolfe written?

Harold Eichholtz Wolfe has written: 'Introduction to non-Euclidean geometry' -- subject(s): Geometry, Non-Euclidean, History

### Why is the parallel axiom in Euclid's geometry false in non-Euclidian geometry?

Euclid's parallel axiom is false in non-Euclidean geometry because non-Euclidean geometry occurs within a different theory of space. There may be one absolute occurrence in non-Euclidean space where Euclid's parallel axiom is valid. Possibly as some form of infinity.

### Who is called 'the father of geometry'?

Euclid is the father of geometry. That's why the geometry you learn is called Euclidean Geometry. THELS from greek
