  1. Unable to open in slow connection and Java applet is also creating hurdles in opening it...Trying for past 15 minutes. If its simply a picture or a series of pictorial steps, plz post in pdf or jpg or word file.
    Would like to see the solution and discuss.

    but there is a litle mistake point K is the intersection of line Segment [A,B] and C4

  3. A line has no endpoints, therefore you cannot measure how long it is. A line segment however, has 2 endpoints and the length of a line segment can be measured. When working with lines and line segments, it's handy to have dot paper available to be able to sketch lines and line segments for meaningful math activities.
