**What is the formula for the length of a line?**

Learn how to find the distance between two points by using the distance formula, which is an application of the Pythagorean theorem. We can rewrite the Pythagorean theorem as d=√((x_2-x_1)²+(y_2-y_1)²) to find the distance between any two points.

## How many endpoints does a line segment have?

two endpoints

### What is called line segment?

In geometry, a line segment is a part of a line that is bounded by two distinct end points, and contains every point on the line that is between its endpoints.

#### What is the difference between a line segment and a ray?

Student: So, what is the difference between a line and a ray? Mentor: A line goes on to infinity in both directions, but a ray stops on one end. If you cut a line in half, you make two rays. A line segment is part of a line that has two endpoints.

**How do you identify a line segment and a ray?**

Lines, Segments, and Rays

- A line can be named either using two points on the line (for example, ↔AB ) or simply by a letter, usually lowercase (for example, line m ).
- A segment is named by its two endpoints, for example, ¯AB .
- A ray is named using its endpoint first, and then any other point on the ray (for example, →BA ).

**How would you describe parallel lines?**

Parallel lines are lines in a plane that are always the same distance apart. Parallel lines never intersect. Perpendicular lines are lines that intersect at a right (90 degrees) angle.

## How can we say two lines are parallel?

Definition: We say that two lines (on the same plane) are parallel to each other if they never intersect each other, ragardless of how far they are extended on either side. Pictorially, parallel lines run along each other like the tracks of a train. Lines AB and CD are parallel to each other.
