# Which is longer a line or a line segment?

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

### Is a line longer than a line segment?

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.

### Can you make a line segment longer than the diameter of circle?

Not if the whole segment is inside the circle.

### 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… Read More

### What is longer a line or line segment?

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… Read More

### Why does the compass width have to be longer than half when bisecting a segment?

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

### What is formed by two endpoints?

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

### Which is longest a ray line or 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.

### Can a curved line be a line segment?

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

### How are a line and a line segment are different?

a line can be indefinitely extended but a line segment is a part. a line segment cannot be extended:)

### Does a line ever end?

No, but a line segment does line segment:._____________________. line:___________________________________________________________etc.

### What is the area of a segment?

a line segment has no area. By definition a line segment is a part of a line, thus it has no area

### Is a line segment part of a line or is a line part of a line segment?

In geometry a line is thought of as extending infinitely in both directions. A line segment is part of a line.

### What does one edge of a book most closely resemble a line or a line segment?

Line segment because a line is endless and a segment is not a segment has to extremites and so is the book...

### A line that intersects a segment at its midpoint?

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

### What is the defintion of a line segment?

A line segment is the line that connects two points.

### Can The length of a line segment can't be measured?

There is no reason that the length of a line segment can't be measured. There is no reason that the length of a line segment can't be measured. There is no reason that the length of a line segment can't be measured. There is no reason that the length of a line segment can't be measured.

### Is a line part of a line segment or a line segment part of a line?

the answer is taht none of them are actually alike I like leaving stupid answers above mine, a line segment is part of a line. A line goes on and on forever so imagine a line segment as just a section of a line.

### What is a segment bisect?

a segment bisect is a point or a line the intersects (splits) a line segment in the middle

### Is an imaginary line from the earth to the moon a line a ray or a segment Why?

It is a segment in case you do not know what a segment is it is a line with two end points

### How can you make a line segment without lines?

You cannot. As soon as you have a line segment you have a line.

### What is a line that is perpendicular to the line segment intersecting the line segment at its midpoint?

perpendicular bisector

### Can a line segment also be a line?

No. A line continues forever in both directions. A line segment stops.

### How many possibilities are there in point-segment relations?

Probably three: The point is not on the segment nor the corresponding line, The point is in the line segment, The point is not in the line segment as given but would be if the segment were extended.

### What name is given to a line segment with endpoints on the circle?

The name is "chord". If the line segment happens to go through the center of the circle, then it is also given the additional name "diameter", and no other chord in the same circle can be longer than that one is.

### How do you differentiate a line segment from a line?

LINE: A line is formed by joining of various points,which can be extended in both the directions. LINE SEGMENT: A line segment is a part of line, which has limitations i.e., it can not be extended in any direction.

### How Are A Line And A Line Segment Different?

A line is never ending, a line segment is a line that starts somewhere and ends some where

### What are the two specific points of a line segment?

Any line segment has infinitely many points and each one of them is specific to that line segment.

### Do you understand the definition of a line segment?

Yes, I do understand the definition of a line segment. A line segment is a line that actually has two endpoints. Such endpoint is a triangle's or a square's side.

### Which is longest line segment or line?

A line segment is a specific length. A line goes on forever in both directions.

### Is a curved line a line segment?

Yes, technically a curved line can be a line segment, a line in general is something that can be curved or straight

### Is line segment AB the same as line segment BA?

Yes, while naming a line segment, as long as the two points are on the line, it does not matter what order they are in or which points they are. well their not

### What is a verticle line segment?

A vertical line goes straight up an down, so a vertical line segment is a line segment that goes straight up and down. Simple.

### What line has two points in it?

Any piece of a line has an infinite number of points on it, whether it's straight or curved. A line segment is a section of a line bounded by two endpoints. A line is continuous, but a line segment, is a segment of a line.

### What is the middle of a line segment called?

The middle of a line segment is called a Midpoint.;-)
