Infinite! When you speak of a "point" on a line segment, you're referring to infinitely small locations, not physical dots that you might draw on the segment. If you think of a "point" as being located at a certain distance from one of the end points of a 3 inch segment, such as 2.31 inches from the left side, you could always add more and more decimal places to the distance, such as 2.3173... to identify an infinite number of "points" or locations on the segment.

A segment has 2 points one at the end and one at the beginning.**The answer as to how many points are on a line segment is "infinite". A given line segment is determined by it's two "end points", but has an infinite set of points between and including these two end points that make up the segment itself.
