A ray has one end point and extends in other direction. Let me show you one ray, see the circled part|dw:1378871786558:dw| This is a ray

How many more are there?

nope, a ray has one end point and then it extends other side.

Sorry I was away ;/
ash2326

|dw:1378873055764:dw| So how many rays are there totally?

6? @ash2326

Ok, let me explain, look at the circled part, it is bounded by two points, it can't extend in neither direction. So it's not a ray|dw:1378874091270:dw|
ash2326
  • ash2326
However these can extend in one direction ( indicated by arrows) So they are rays. Think of sun rays, they originate from sun and reach here|dw:1378874149915:dw|
ash2326
  • ash2326
Sun|dw:1378874163036:dw| Sun and three rays

Yeah, a ray has ONE endpoint. Think of the dots as stop signs. You can't run into a stop sign or you have no ray. We want a ray to start from one spot and then just shoot off forever |dw:1378874629461:dw| |dw:1378874697924:dw| Make sense?
