    Hello Magentarita,

    I have tried to construct a diagram based on your description, but there are many posibilities. Do these lines produce closed figures like triangles, rectangles, etc.? See my figure and see if it's close to what you have described. If not, then enhance your description a bit.

    It was probably an error by the teacher when he wrote it on the board.
