# Desargues' Theorem

- Topic:
- Geometry

This applet shows the construction for Desargues' theorem. Move the slider to see the construction progress.
At step 0 we have three concurrent lines. You can move them using the diamond-shaped points.
At step 1 we have the two triangles in perspective from a point. You can move the brown points along the lines to change the triangles.
At step 2 we have matching edges of the triangles meeting in three points.
At step 3 we have a line joining these three points -- Desargues' theorem says they will always be collinear.
