IN ENGLISH: 1. as defined above. EX. I'll meet you at noon where Main and Front intersect.

APPLICATION: (see list 230)

1. Find the intersection of: y = 2x + 4 and y = 3.

2. What's ?   IN MATH: 1. n. with sets, the operation which creates a new set containing only those elements common to the original sets. 2. n. with curves, the point(s) which the graphs have in common.EX. The point (-3,4) is the intersection of x = -3 and y = (-2/3)x + 2.

IN ENGLISH: 1. n. a place where streets cross. EX. see above illustration. 2. as defined above.
