## What is the best measuring method of a line segment?

Measuring a line segment with the help of a scale: Generally, we measure a line segment with the help of a scale which has marking in centimetres (cm) and inches (in). Mostly we measure the line segments in centimetres. Each centimetre is divided into 10 small equal parts, called millimetres (mm).

**How do you find the length of a line between two points?**

The linear distance between the two points is the square root of the sum of the squared values of the x-axis distance and the y-axis distance. To carry on the example: the distance between (3,2) and (7,8) is sqrt (52), or approximately 7.21 units.

**What is the measure of a line?**

So, a line segment is a piece or part of a line having two endpoints. Unlike a line, a line segment has a definite length. The length of a line segment can be measured either in metric units such as millimeters, centimeters, or customary units like feet or inches.

### What are line segments example?

A segment has a definite beginning and a definite end, with each end represented by a point. Examples of segments include the length of a table, the distance of a straight road, etc. On the other hand, a line has no definite beginning or end.

**What is an example of a line segment?**

**What are the two methods of measuring a curved line?**

A curved line or surface cannot be measured by a straight scale, a measuring tape or thread must be used instead.

## What does it mean when a line segment has two points?

Direct link to Henry Nguyen’s post “At 1:05, Sal had shown line segment AD with points…” , Sal had shown line segment AD with points B and C in them, (reference from Language and notation of basic geometry video) so does it means the line segment is collinear even though there are two points in them?
