**When we draw lines in geometry, we use an arrow at each end to show that it extends infinitely.**

- 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.

## What are basic requirements to draw a line?

Step 1: Draw a line of any length. Step 2: Mark the starting point of the line segment. Step 3: Take a ruler and place the pointer of the compass, apart from the pencil’s lead. Step 4: Place the pointer of the compass at the starting point and mark an arc on the line with the pencil point.

## How is a line segment drawn?

A line segment is a part of a line that goes from one point to another. To draw a line segment, make a point, place the zero mark on the ruler at that point, and draw a line along the ruler, stopping at the desired length.

## What does drawing a line mean?

to put a limit on what you will do or allow to happen, esp. because you feel something is wrong: I’ll do whatever my company asks me to, but I draw the line when someone asks me to lie for them.

## How do you draw a 5cm line segment?

The steps to draw a line segment of length 5 cm using ruler and compasses are:

- Step 1: Draw a line of any length. Mark a point A on the line, which is the starting point of the line segment.
- Step 2: Using a ruler, place the pointer of the compass 5 cm apart from the pencil’s lead.

## How do you draw a line with a ruler?

Draw a line

- Select the page where you want to use the ruler.
- Tap the Ruler. on the Draw tab to make it appear on your note.
- Position the ruler at the angle you want. Use one finger to move the ruler up/down or left/right.
- To draw a line Tap a pen or highlighter on the Draw tab, and begin drawing.

## What are lines in mathematics?

line, Basic element of Euclidean geometry. Euclid defined a line as an interval between two points and claimed it could be extended indefinitely in either direction. Such an extension in both directions is now thought of as a line, while Euclid’s original definition is considered a line segment.
