Incidence Geometry: Give proofs for the following:
i.For every line there is at least one point not lying on it.

Give proofs for the following:
i. For every line there is at least one point not lying on it.
We know that there exist three non-collinear points. Let us call these P,Q, and R. Let p be any line. Then at least one out of P, Q, R is does not lie l, since P,Q, and R all coincident with p contradicts the fact that they are non-collinear.
ii. For every ...
Step-by-step proofs are provided to all the lines and intersections statements.
