    I've only recently looked at this stuff myself. When I was in college ( a long time ago) we never did this. From what you have stated I'm pretty sure that it's a ray.

    - it also says in the link that a ray is a portion of a line.

    no its not a line segment A line segment has 2 endpoints

    No - because a line extends indefinitely in both directions I would say its a ray only.

    In geometry some words such as point, line and plane are undefined terns.

    point no dimensions represented by a dot line extends in one dimension represented by a straight line with 2 arrowheads to indicate the line extends without end in 2 directions. a plane extends in 2 dimensions. represented by a shape that looks like a table top or wall. extends without ends. collinear points points on the same line coplanar points lie on the same plane.

    so it would be point right, since its undefined then its a point????

    the ray AB consists of the initial point A and all points on AB that lie on the same side of A as point B

    a ray radiates... outwards from a point, in a particular direction. the negative or opposite of a ray, radiates outwards from a point in the opposite direction.
