Can anyone help with this question - Thanks in advance.


*I am trying to find the correct terminology to use for a shape where three
lines intersect with consistent angular displacement, as in the Mercedes
logo or the old "peace sign". If such a shape had four lines intersecting
and with consistent angular displacement, it would be called "cruciform"
for obvious reasons. I am thinking there must be an equivalent term for
when only three lines intersect, but have not yet been able to find
it......*

I know a *chord* is a line segment ending on 2 sides of a circle, so you
might get away with saying something like "circle with three visible
chords," but perhaps there's something more official.
