Vertex and Edges of a Geometric Figure

The lines that form an angle are called sides of the angle. The common point of the lines is the vertex of the angle. (Mathematics..., Charles D. Miller, et al)

What is a vertex?

The vertex of a region that will always contain the optimum value, whether maximum or minimum. The angles can be denoted with the letter of its vertex. The point where the parabola intersects is the vertex of the parabola

What is an Edge?

It is the line resulting from the intersection of two planes, to be an edge there must be 3 planes or dimensions that make it visible.


Thoughts on Mathematics

Mathematics is the language with which God has written the universe.
- Galileo Galilei (1564/1642)

I have hardly ever known a mathematician who was capable of reasoning.
- Plato (427—347 B.C.E.)

Mathematics is the queen of the sciences.
- Carl Friedrich Gauss (1777/1855)

There is geometry in the humming of the strings, there is music in the spacing of the spheres (planets).
- Pythagoras (569/500 B.C.E)

The laws of nature are but the mathematical thoughts of God.
- Euclid( c. 300 B.C.E) is a database of embeddable formulas, equations and calculators. You are allowed to use our calculators in any project as long as you give attribution.
