i need help as far as basic geometrics...what is a ray

OpenStudy (anonymous):

a ray is just a straight line that has 1 starting point and goes on forever

OpenStudy (anonymous):

so what would a line segment be

OpenStudy (anonymous):

a line segment is like a ray in that it is a straight line. however instead of just 1 endpoint it has 2 endpoints.

OpenStudy (anonymous):

think of a ray like a ray of sunshine. it starts at the sun and goes on forever into space. a line segment is just what it says, a segment of a line.

OpenStudy (anonymous):

i have a diagram here that shows a middle line and 2 lines going through it and another meets in the middle but does not go alll the way through very confused on what the ray would be

OpenStudy (anonymous):

hmm are there arrows anywhere? do any of the lines look like ----> or are all they all o------o (if that makes sense)
