IMPORTANT POINTS

1. Fundamental Concepts : Geometry is the study of position,, shape, size and other properties of different figures. The geometrical terms such as : point, line, plane, etc., contain the basic ideas for the development of geometry.
(i) Point : A point is a mark of position. It has neither length nor width nor. thickness and occupies no space. (ii) Line : A line has only length. It has neither width nor thickness. (iii) Ray : It is a line (i.e. a straight line) that starts from a given fixed point and moves in the same direction. (iv) Line Segment: A line segmeftt is a part of a straight line. A line segment is a part of a line and also of a ray. (v) Surface : A surface has length and width, but no thickness.
(vi) Plane : It is a flat surface. A plane has length and width, but no thickness.
(vii) Parallel Lines : Two straight lines are said to be parallel to each other if they lie in the same plane and do not meet when produced on either side. (viii)Intersecting Lines : If two lines lie in the same plane and are not parallel to each other, they are called intersecting lines.
(xi) Collinearity of Points : If three of more points lie on the same straight line, then the points are called collinear points. (x) Concurrent Lines : If three or more straight lines pass through the same point, the lines are called concurrent lines. ### Fundamental Concepts Exercise 23A – Selina Concise Mathematics Class 6 ICSE Solutions

Write a statement regarding your observations.
Solution:
We take a point O on a piece of paper. Using a sharp pencil, we draw a line OA through O another line OB is drawn as shown in the figure.
We can draw an infinite number of lines from O as we know that an infinite number of lines can be drawn through a point in aplane,

Write a statement regarding your observations.
Solution:
Two points A and B are marked On the plain sheet of paper. Using pencil, draw a line through there two points. We cannot draw any other line joining them as only one line can be drawn passing through two fixed (given) points in a plane.

In a circle, point P is its centre and PA = PB = radius of the circle. Where do points A and B lie ?
Solution:
A circle is given with centre P and PA = PB = radius of the circle. ∵ The radii of a circle are equal there they lie on the circumference of the circle In other words, path of a point which is equidistant from a fixed point is the circumference of a circle. The fixed point is called the centre and equidistance is the radius.
