Is the interior of an angle a convex set?

  1. Mar 28, 2012 #1
    I need to prove the interior of <ABC is a convex set. I know it is. I started by defining the angle as the intersection of two half planes and using the fact that each half plane is convex. I am stuck on where to go from here.

    If you could prove the intersection of two convex sets is convex as well you'd be set

    Do you have any suggestions on how to prove the intersection of two half planes is convex?

    Let p and q be in the intersection of convex sets A and B.

    p and q are both in A so ....

    p and q are both in B so ....
