A line extends forever into space and a line segment is a segment or part of a line, so a line is longer than a line segment.

### Is a ray line segment or line longer?

Let's think of a line segment as a finite set of points. Along those lines, (pun intended) think of a ray and a line as infinite sets of points. Then we think of longer in terms of the size of the set. So for example, a 2 inch line segment would be longer than a 1 inch line segment because we can have more points in the set which is made of the two inch segment. The ray and the line are the same size since they both can be viewed as sets containing an infinite number of points. The line segment being a finite set is smaller than the other two.

### In hopeton if you a line segment one inch shorter than the line segment how long is it?

If the line segment is 1 inch shorter than the other line segment in Hopeton, then the length of the line segment would be 1 inch less than the length of the other line segment. So, if the other line segment is x inches long, then this line segment would be x - 1 inches long.
