Desargues' theorem:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Two triangles are in perspective axially if and only if they are in perspective centrally.

I was wondering if this particular configuration was correct:

I don't know if it is even possible for the center of perspectivity (O) be in-between the two triangles. Also I believe that the perspectivity axis (P,Q,R) isn't horizontal.

My first thought was that the correspondent vertices were wrongly located but then again I found this in a geometry book. So please could you help me? Are the correspondent vertices wrongly located or am I not undertanding? HELP please!
