NBA = 23' 9" (22' in corner) NCAA = 19' 9" from the center of the hoop. From the wording of the NBA rule book: "d. The three-point field goal area has parallel lines 3' from the sidelines, extending from the baseline and an arc of 23'9" from the middle of the basket which intersects the parallel lines." It has moved a few times in the last 10 years but right now this is where it stands. A free throw line is 13 feet.

Well, I think you mean what is the three point line... well the three point line in basketball is a designated arc line radiating from the basket. If a player shoots beyond the three point line, it counts as three points while if you shoot inside the three point line, it only counts as two points.

Depends on your school.
The NBA introduced the three point line in the 1979-80 season at a length of 23'9" from the top of the key to a length of 22 feet in the corners. In the 1994-95 season, the NBA changed things so the three point line was a uniform 22 feet from the basket. The distance was reverted to 23'9" in the 1997-98 season and has been there ever since. The 19'9" distance is the distance of the college basketball three point line, which will be changed to 20'9" for the 2008-09 season
The three point line is 20 feet and 6 inches from the basket.
If you shoot and make a basket inside the three point line or with your feet on the three point line it is worth two points. If you shoot and make a basket anywhere behind the three point line without your feet on the line it is worth three points. If you get fouled when you are shooting you go to the free throw line to shoot free throws. This is an uncontested, untimed shot that if you make it, it is worth one point.
A Two pointer is when the basket ball is shot from inside the three point line, it can be called a regular basket
the free throw line is usually 15ft from the basket
