Open And Closed Figures In Geometry

 

Closed Figures :

When the initial and end points coincide with each other, the figure is called a Closed Figure.

Example :

Open Figures : These type of figures have differrent initial and end points. They do not coincide.

Example :

 

Complex closed figures :

Consider the example below, where the figure has line segments cross themselves at one or more points. These kind of figures where one or more closed figures cross themselves at one or more points, are called complex closed figures.
