Lines, Line Segments, and Rays

Lines have no end points-they go on forever in both directions. On paper, this is shown with arrows on both ends.
Line segments are portions of lines. They have two definite end points.
Rays are portions of lines that have an end point on one side while the other side has an arrow, showing that it goes on infinitely in that one direction.
