- 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 1(David C)
We do casework to find values that work
Case 1: Four Parallel Lines= 0 Intersections
Case 2: Three Parallel Lines and One Line Intersecting the Three Lines= 3 Intersections
Case 3: Two Parallel Lines with another Two Parallel Lines= 4 Intersections
Case 4: Two Parallel Lines with Two Other Non-Parallel Lines=5 Intersections
Case 5: Four Non-Parallel Lines All Intersecting Each Other at different points = 6 Intersections
Case 6: Four Non-Parallel Lines All Intersecting At One Point= 1 Intersection
You can find out that you cannot have 2 Intersections
Sum= =
