## On the General Position of Special Polygons

Mariusz Giero
University of Bialystok

### Summary.

In this paper we introduce the notion of general position. We also show some auxiliary theorems for proving Jordan curve theorem. The following main theorems are proved: \begin{enumerate} \item End points of a polygon are in the same component of a complement of another polygon if number of common points of these polygons is even; \item Two points of polygon $L$ are in the same component of a complement of polygon $M$ if two points of polygon $M$ are in the same component of polygon $L.$ \end{enumerate}
