Geometry

- A
**point**determines a location. The tip of a compass, the sharpened end of a pencil, the pointed end of a needle, etc., are the examples of points. Generally, points are denoted by capital letters. - A
**line segment**corresponds to the shortest distance between two points. The line segment joining the points P and Q is denoted as .

- A
**ray**is a portion of a line, which starts at one point and goes endlessly in a direction.

This ray is denoted as . Arrow head is towards Q since it is extended along Q.

- When a line segment PQ is extended indefinitely on both sides of points P and Q, it becomes a
**line**, . Line is usually denoted by small letters*l, m, n.*

- Two lines
*l*and*m*are said to be**intersecting lines**, if they intersect at a point.

- Two lines are said to be
**parallel lines**, if they never intersect eac…
