Geometry

Top Answer

In Geometry, a line is the longest between a line segment, a line and a ray. This is easy to determine given the definitions of each:

-A **line**, which is determined by any two points in it,
extends infinitely in both of its ends.

-A **line segment** is the portion of a line contained
between two points, including these points.

-Any point O of a line divides it into two parts called
**ray**s that have a starting point in O but are infinite on
their other end.

So, a line segment is a segment with an end and a beginning, a ray has a beginning but not an end, and a line has no beginning or end, so a line is the longest.
