Definition

The intersection of two lines $AB$ and $CD$ is denoted by $AB\cap CD$.

The intersection of two geometric figures is the set of points shared by both figures.


Note that this use of $\cap$ is consistent with that of its more usual context of set intersection.


When two lines intersect, they are said to cut each other.
