**Point of intersection**

In mathematics, a **point of intersection** is the point at which two or more geometric figures meet. That is, it is the place where the figures share a common point.

Examples of intersection points:

**Two lines:**If two lines are not parallel, they intersect at a single point. This point is the point of intersection of the lines.

**A line and a circle:**A line can intersect a circle at two points, one point, or no point. If the line crosses the circle at two points, these points are called points of intersection.

**Two circles:**Two circles can intersect at two points, one point, or no point. If the circles intersect at two points, these points are called points of intersection.
