Talk:Equation of Straight Line in Plane
Jump to navigation Jump to search
- The original plan was:
- a) to take the definition of the cartesian space (n-dimensional) and demonstrate that it is isomorphic to the Euclidean plane / space as "assumed" by Euclid (nowhere does he actually "define" the plane)
- b) Somehow demonstrate that the equation as given is equivalent to that given by Euclid (i.e. that it doesn't deviate from itself, or however the wording is)
- but I didn't have the mathematical vocabulary when I started it and probably still don't but I know better now what I don't know).
