Greg drew a pair of parallel lines and a line segment next to each other on a chalkboard. Which of these statements best compares the pair of parallel lines and the line segment? Greg drew a pair of parallel lines and a line segment next to each other on a chalkboard. Which of these statements best compares the pair of parallel lines and the line segment? @Mathematics

OpenStudy (king):

options?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

Parallel lines and the line segment have no dimensions of measurement. The parallel lines extend infinitely in both directions and the line segment has two endpoints. The parallel lines and the line segment always meet at a common endpoint which is called the vertex. Parallel lines and a line segment cannot lie on the same plane at the same time because they do not overlap.

i guess it is the second sentence

OpenStudy (anonymous):

The parallel lines extend infinitely in both directions and the line segment has two endpoints. Since the first part of this is the definition of parallel lines and the second part is the definition of a line segment.

Thank you both :)

OpenStudy (unklerhaukus):

but how can greg draw a pair of parallel lines on a chalkboard, assuming the chalkboard is finite

OpenStudy (anonymous):

Noone said it was a finite board. This is a hypothetical scenario where greg is God (or other deified being)

OpenStudy (anonymous):

haha :)

OpenStudy (unklerhaukus):

and he still manages to draw the line segment After both of the infinite parallel lines

thanks for asking the question. Stuck in summer school
