If you have 500 lines in a plane that all pass through the same point, it's like 1000 spokes radiating from that point. You'd end up with 1000 pie-shaped regions.

I assume they are arranged in some sort of circular way, then it would be 1000 regions.To understand it simply cut a plane with 2, 3,4 , etc lines and then count the regions, youll find the pathTake Care Bye
