Concurrent Lines

More than two straight lines which pass through a point in a plane are defined concurrent lines.

Straight lines are often appeared by passing through a point in a plane. Two lines are passed through a point in most of the cases and they are known as intersecting lines but more than two straight lines are also passed through a point in some special cases and they are called concurrent lines.

It seems, straight lines pass through a point but they are intersected each other at that point.

Example

Concurrent Lines

RS, TU, VW and XY are four straight lines. All are in same plane. Assume, they pass through a point in the plane. Now, the straight lines RS, TU, VW and XY are called concurrent lines.
