Drawing Lines, Segments, and Rays Worksheets
What Are Lines, Segments, and Rays? As the students begin learning geometry, the first concepts they will learn will be about lines and their possible types. It is crucial that students polish these concepts before moving on to advanced geometrical concepts. These concepts will be reinforced continually in advanced mathematics and geometry. Therefore, mastering them is of great help to the students. A line segment is often referred to as the portion of a line or a ray. It has a definite starting point and an ending point. In other terms, a line segment is a line bounded by two endpoints. We can define or label the line segment by using letters for both the endpoints. We mention this letter above or slightly below the endpoint. A line segment is called by its defined endpoints. For example, a line segment AB would look like this: A ray is a line that starts at one point but continues infinitely in one direction. If we label a ray at starting point A, we will place B to tell us in which direction the ray would proceed. We will draw a line with labels A and, but we would continue the line beyond point B. Unlike segments and rays, lines do not have any defined endpoints. It neither begins at point nor ends at any point. It continues infinitely in both directions.
When does CAB + BAT = CAT?
When CAB, BAT, and CAT are angles.
If angle CAB and angle BAT are adjacent, with A as the vertex, then the outer rays will form angle CAT.
