This is high school geometry question.

In some conditional statments, I see this hypothesis, "If two points are not distinct".
Does this mean if two points are not distinct, then they must be exactly the same point?

    Accepted Solution

    Yes if two points are not distinct then they are the same point.

    It's one of those logic problems that's supposed to make you think outside the box.
