Line, Ray and segment

line segment

it is a line segment.

It is called a bisector.

Yes. A line segment has one dimension. There are lots of one-dimension shapes. like a ray, line segment and line.

both are a part of a line

yes, because a line segment is part of a line and a ray goes on forever and it does always happen

Yes

a ray continues on and on but a line segment stops

It is a segment in case you do not know what a segment is it is a line with two end points

No. A ray is infinite on one side and ends at a point at the other. A line segment ends in two points. A ray can contain a line segment, as the distance between any two given points on the ray is a line segment.

They are alike because a ray is part of a line, a segment is part of a line, and a line is basically a line. They are different because a segment has two end points; a ray has one, and a line is a group of points on a straight path that extends to infinity like a ray extends to infinity in one direction

They are not. A line segment is of finite length whereas a ray is infinitely long.

A line segment has a finite length. A ray extends to infinity in one direction.

A straight line may be extended in either direction indefinitely. A ray is the part of the straight line beginning at a given point and extending limitlessly in one direction. A line segment is a part of the straight line between two of its points, including the two points.

In geometry a line is thought of as extending infinitely in both directions. A line segment is part of a line.

A line segment has one more point than a ray
