A line segment is actually a normal line:( yes i know i couldn't believe it myself either), a real line goes on forever, (both ways up and down and never end). Whereas a line segment, has a ending at both sides no matter how long the line segment is drawn...It is still a line segment. So basically, you could draw a long line segment for the rest of your life and that would still be a line segment. So to round it off. You.Can.Never.Draw.A.Line. Sorry :}

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.
