PAPPUS' THEOREM ILLUSTRATED
- James Dildine
Pappus' Theorem: Inscribe a hexagon (any six lines in a plane, with no three meeting at the same point) in an angle. Each pair of opposite sides are extended to intersection points. These interesection points (XYZ) form a straight line mapping their corresponding hexagonal points.
Try dragging around the Six points thus manipulating the points being mapped.
