The ninety nine issues of intersection provided the following have been accumulated in the course of a year-long look for superb concurrence of traces. for every instance we discover compelling facts for the occasionally startling undeniable fact that in a geometrical determine 3 directly traces, or occasionally circles, go through one and a similar element. after all, we're conversant in a few examples of this from easy user-friendly geometry — the intersection of medians, altitudes, perspective bisectors, and perpendicular bisectors of facets of a triangle. the following there are numerous extra examples — a few for figures except triangles, a few the place much more than 3 immediately strains go through a standard element.

The major a part of the publication offers ninety nine issues of intersection basically visually. they're built in a series of figures, many with out caption or verbal remark. furthermore the e-book comprises normal options on and examples of the issues of intersection, in addition to a few regular equipment of proving their life. some of the examples proven within the ebook have been encouraged via questions and recommendations made through scholars and high-school lecturers. a number of of these examples haven't just a geometrical, but additionally an fascinating aesthetic, element.

The e-book addresses high-school scholars and scholars on the undergraduate point in addition to their academics, yet will entice somebody drawn to geometry.
