Given the definition of a geometric n-simplex:

where are geometrically independent, we can show that the n-simplex is convex (i.e. given any two points, the line connecting them lies in the simplex).

Write , .

Consider the line from x to y: .

Thus the line lies inside the simplex, and thus the simplex is convex.
