Line is a collection of points in a straight path that can be extended upto infinity. Since the line is extended to infinity its length cannot be measured. A Straight Line with arrow on both sides is used to denote a line.
A line segment is a part of the line that has two end points. Since the segment has two definite endpoints its length can be measured. A st...Read More

A beam of light starts from its source but has no end. The light beam travels to an infinite distance. Hence the light beam is called a Ray. A ray normally has no end. In Geometry the ray is described as a part of the line.
Rounding is basically finding a less accurate but nearest number for calculations purpose. Generally we do not get exact answer by rounding off but it helps in heading easily for the calculation part.
There are some rules to round whole Numbers:
