1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data In Fano's Geometry, we have the following axioms a. There exists at least one line b. Every line has exactly three points on it c. Not all points are on the same line d. For two distinct points, there exists exactly one line on both of them e. Each two lines have at least one point on both of them We were asked to create a model, and I was able to do that with no problem. Where I ran into problems was in the second part. The second part was to prove that the 4th axiom(part d) was independent. I am stuck on how to make this happen. 2. Relevant equations There are no equations. 3. The attempt at a solution When attempting the problem I think I need to remove one of the lines off of my model. I am not sure if this is a step in the right direction. If it is, I am not sure where to go from there.
