- is straight (no curves),
- has no thickness, and
- extends in both directions without end (infinitely).
- A line has no ends
What is the main difference(s) between (a) a line, (b) a segment and (c) a ray ?
A line has no ends, it does not have a certain length, it extends in both directions.
ReplyDeleteA segment has two ends, it has a certain length, it cannot extend.
A ray has only one end, it has no length, it can extend in only one direction.
A line has no ends. A ray has one point at one side however a segment has two ends which determine its length.
ReplyDeleteA line has no ends and extends to infinity. A segment has two ends and is not extending to infinity. A ray has one end and the other extending to infinity
ReplyDeleteA line has no ends and can reach infinity, A segment is a part of a line and has two ends which can be used to find the length of the segment. A ray has one end and another end would extend to infinity
ReplyDeleteA line is one dimensional with both ends reaching to infinity.
ReplyDeleteA segment is one dimensional with both ends reaching a finite number
A ray is one dimensional with one end reaching infinity and the other end at a finite number.
Line has no ends, extends forever
ReplyDeleteSegment has two ends, has a certain length
Ray has only one end and it can only extend on the other end
A line has no end to it, it can go on forever.
ReplyDeleteA segment is a select portion of a line, and thus is limited by the segment ends. It does not go on forever.
A ray has on end, but the other can extend on to ∞.
A line extends in both directions without end.
ReplyDeleteA segment has the same properties of a line, however, it has 2 endpoints.
A ray has one endpoint with one end extending to infinity.
