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 :}

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.

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.

A line segment.A line segment.A line segment.A line segment.

A ray line is longer, since it has an end point and then extends forever in the other direction its length is infinite, whereas a segment has a definite length defined by two endpoints.

A line that intersects a segment at its midpoint bisects the segment.

a line is loger.line segment is a finite part of a line while the line is infinite

A line is longer.!?!

um i think.......

no

No, Aline never ends. EVER

Not if the whole segment is inside the circle.

So that the arcs constructed are at midpoint of the line segment to be bisected.

line segment

No it can't because a line segment is a line that is straight. So it is not a line segment.
