Why is it impossible to draw a mathematical line?

It is impossible to draw a mathematical line because a mathematical line is a straight line that has no width and no ends.

1.B


How do we show the location of a mathematical line?

To show the location of a mathematical line, we draw a pencil line and put arrowheads on both ends to emphasize that the mathematical line goes on and on in both directions. We name a line by naming two points on the line.

1.B


What is a line segment?

A line segment is a part of a line. It contains the endpoints and all points between the endpoints.

1.B


How do we show the location of a line segment?

To show the location of a line segment, we use a pencil line with no arrowheads. We name a segment by naming the endpoints of the segment.
