    For ONE line. But once there are three intersecting lines, the argument
    against 'equal numbers' on either side of any particular line is the other
    line - or two. As I put it earlier:
    
    'And if our AP is not contained within the cocked hat, then where is it?
    If outside, but near one intersection then those 2 LOPs are roughly
    correct but the third is quite wrong. If outside, and somewhat halfway
    along one of the LOPs between 2 intersections, then that LOP is roughly
    correct but the other 2 must be decidedly dodgy. Is this' - these two
    scenarios -
    'really the case 75% of the time?'
