Best Answer

If the value at the end is not included (< or >) then it should be an open circle. If the value at the end isincluded (Ã¢â€°Â¤ or Ã¢â€°Â¥) then it should be a closed circle.

Circle

Such a line segment would be a radius of the circle.

A line segment that divides a circle in two is a chord.If the two parts of the circle are equal, the line segment is a diameter.See 'The Parts of the Circle' in Sources and related links, below.

A. If the line segment touches two points on the circle it is called as: 1. secant; if the line extends outside the circle. 2. chord; if the line is present only within the circle. B. If the line segment touches one point on the circle AND the center of the circle AND is present only within the circle it is called as: radius.

Not if the whole segment is inside the circle.

Circle

A chord is a line segment whose endpoints lie on a circle. A secant is a line (or line segment) that intersects a circle in two places, endpoints NOT on the circle.
