## What is a ray line segment and angle?

A ray is part of a line. A ray has one endpoint and continues forever in one direction. **A line segment is part of a line**. It is the part of a line between two endpoints. An angle is formed by two rays or line segments that share an endpoint, which is called the.

## What is the symbol represent a ray?

A ray is also a piece of a line, except that it has only one endpoint and continues forever in one direction. It could be thought of as a half‐line with an endpoint. It is named by the letter of its endpoint and any other point on the ray. The **symbol → written on top of the two letters** is used to denote that ray.

### How many rays are there?

We know that each ray has an initial point where the ray begins and we name the ray with another point on the ray excluding the initial point. If A is an initial point and B is any point on the ray then we name the ray as →AB . So there are **8 rays**.
