- The following problem is from both the 2019 AMC 10A #14 and 2019 AMC 12A #8, so both problems redirect to this page.
For a set of four distinct lines in a plane, there are exactly distinct points that lie on two or more of the lines. What is the sum of all possible values of ?
Solution
Drawing lines, you see that the maximum points of intersection is . Then, we see that we can not make intersection points and can just make a quadrilateral, triangle, two T's, and one pair of coordinate axis to make and points of intersection. Thus the answer is to get
