### What is a line segmet?

a line segment is a part of a line that is bounded by 2 end points, and contains every point on the line between its end points

### A finite part of a line?

Line segment (or segment). When 2 end points are the same, it is a point.

### Is a ray a line with 2 endpoints?

a ray is a line with one end point and the other side goes on forever. if it had two end points it would be a line segment

### Why can't a line segment have two points?

Because a line segment means that it does have 2 end points at the end of the line and parallel lines never touch. I could explain more but don't feel like it good luck with that math!!

### What is a portion of a line with only one endpoint?

line= ____________________ has no end point ray = .______________________________ has one end point, other direction keeps going line segment = .____________. stops at both ends. has 2 end points

### Can a line segment have 2 points?

yes. because a line segment does not go on forever like e line. therefor, it has to stop. because it has to stop, it has for example:little nuggets on the end of both sides.and there are two sides so it can have to points.

### What of a circle has two end points on the circle?

Okay if your talking about a circle with a line through it and has 2 end points on the circle, it would be called a chord and if it crosses the center it's called a diameter.

### How many points do you get when you pass the goal line after the touchdown?

If the team attempts to pass or run the ball into the end zone after a touchdown, they are awarded 2 points for successful completion of the play. So the short answer is: 2 points!

### How many points does a line segment have?

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… Read More

### Why does a line have to have 2 points?

In geometry, a line is somply a collection of points. However, when naming a line, a line is nemed using two of its points.

### How do you make a number line?

You draw a straight line; mark a point and call it "zero"; decide on which direction should be positive; mark points at regular intervals - for example, every centimeter; and label those points. To one side of zero you mark the points as 1, 2, 3, etc.; to the other side, as -1, -2, -3, etc.

### How many straight lines can be formed with 10 non collinear points?

The beginning point of a line can be any one of the 10 points. For each of these ... -- The end point of the line can be any one of the remaining 9 points. So there are (10 x 9) = 90 ways to form a line with 2 of 10 non-colinear points. But once a line is drawn, there's no difference between it and the one that was drawn in the opposite… Read More

### The procedure to divide a One meter stick into 3 equal parts?

Draw a line at angle starting from the first point of the stick. It should be of any arbitrary length, but definitely shorter than the stick. Let's call it line A. Extend it two times, so total length of it is 3 times A. Connect the last point of the line you just draw with the end of a stick. Let's call that new line a line B. Draw lines parallel to line B, going… Read More

### Can a circle pass through three points of a straight line?

No, a circle can never pass through three points of a straight line. The circle will touch 1) no points of the line, 2) one point of the line (which is now tangent to the circle), or 3) two points of the line. A line can contain (at most) two points that lie on the line.

### Area between 2 points including thos 2 points?

An area can not be defined unless there are at minimum 3 distinct points defined. What you have with two points is a line, or line segment, which are of 1 dimension.

### How can you construct a parallelogram?

Use two line segments (line A and line B) with all points on line A equidistant from all points on line B; in otherwords, use 2 parallel lines. Choose two points on line A (points a and b). Now choose 2 points on line B (x and y) so that the distance of line ab equals the distance of line xy. Connect points a and y with a line segment ab and points b and… Read More

### If the quarterback steps out of bounds at the back of the end zone what is the call?

Safety. 2 points awarded to the other team, and they receive a free kick.

### What is the call when a player on the receiving team catches a kickoff in the end zone and steps out the back or side of the end zone?

If the player does not step outside of the end zone before stepping out, then it is ruled a touch-back and the ball is placed at the 20 yard line. However if he steps out of the end zone then steps out inside the end zone it is ruled a safety and the other team gets 2 points and the team that stepped out in the end zone then gets a free punt.

### How many straight lines can be formed by connecting any 2 of the 6 non-collinear points?

15 Consider one of the points. Call it point A. You can draw one line containing A through each of the other five lines (i.e., there are five lines that contain both A and another of the five points). Now, consider another of the points -- call it B. Excluiding the line that contains A and B, there are four lines that can be drawn containing B and one of the other four points. Continue… Read More

### How do you find the length of a line?

It depends on what information you have. You could use a ruler or tape measure. Or, if the information is given in the foorm of the coordinates of the end points you could find the length as follows: if the coordinates of the two end points are (a,b) and (c,d) then the length is sqrt[(a - c)2 + (b - d)2]

### Prove the existence of triangles?

1. Given any line, there are at least two points on the line. Call them A and B. 2. Given any line, there exists at least one point in the plane that is not on the line. Call that point C. 3. Given any two points (A and C and, then B and C) there exists a straight line joining them. The point C is not on AB so AB and AC are distinct. Similarly… Read More

### What is the midpoint in math terms?

GIven 2 distance points (x1,y1) and (x2,y2) we can draw a line between those point and the midpoint formula finds the midpoint of that line. Call the midpoint (m1,m2) then it is [ (x1+x1 )/2 , (y1+y2/2)]

### Does a plane containing 2 points of a line contains the entire line?

Yes, a plane containing 2 points of a line contains the entire line. Let us consider two points on a plane and then draw a line segment joining those two points. Since the points lie on the plane so line segment has to lie completely on that plane too. Now if we extend the line segment indefinitely in both directions we get a line and that line also has to lie on the same plane… Read More

### How many points does a line have?

a line has to have at least 2 points. a plane has to have at least 3 points. ______________ It takes two points to define a unique line in Euclidean space. But every line and every line segment contains infinitely many points. The same is true for planes in Euclidean space. You need at least 3 points to define a unique plane, but every plane containes infinitely many points and infinitely many lines or line… Read More

### What is the equation of the line passing through the points 2 -4 and -1 2?

y=-2x Explanation You could find the slope of line going through the points (2,-4) and (-1,2). It is slope is -6/3 or -2 So the line is Now plug in one of the points and the slope into point slope form and find the line y+4=-2(x-2) or y+4=-2x+4 so y=-2x Check it by making sure BOTH points are on the line. Plug the values into the equation you found for the line. -4=-2(2) 2=-2(-1)

YES. The intersection of two planes always makes a line. A line is at least two points.
