## What is the symbol of intersecting?

∩

The symbol we use for the intersection is ∩. The word that you will often see that indicates an intersection is “and”. Find A∩B.

**What is intersecting lines in math?**

Two or more lines which share exactly one common point are called intersecting lines. This common point exists on all these lines and is called the point of intersection. It is to be noted that: The intersecting lines meet at one, and only one point, no matter at what angle they meet.

### What is the line symbol?

Table of symbols in geometry:

Symbol | Symbol Name | Meaning / definition |
---|---|---|

AB | line segment | line from point A to point B |

ray | line that start from point A | |

arc | arc from point A to point B | |

⊥ | perpendicular | perpendicular lines (90° angle) |

**How do you name an intersection in geometry?**

The line segments intersect at point K. An intersection is a single point where two lines meet or cross each other. In the figure above we would say that “point K is the intersection of line segments PQ and AB”. Another way it may be said is that “the line segment PQ intersects AB at point K”.

## What is the intersection of line m and line N?

Forming a plane The intersection of two lines forms a plane. In the figure above, line m and n intersect at point O. Together, lines m and n form plane p.

**What are intersecting angles?**

Intersecting lines create two pairs of vertical angles which are congruent. Therefore, we can deduce that y = measure of angle AED. Furthermore, intersecting lines create adjacent angles that are supplementary (sum to 180 degrees).

### What does this symbol mean ⊥?

Perpendicular lines are lines, segments or rays that intersect to form right angles. The symbol ⊥ means is perpendicular to .
