this question may sound kind of dumb, so if it is, i apologize, but let say you have a line with a point taken out of it. (<------- -------->) since a point does not have a defined length, how could you prove that the line is now two rays, and not still a line, because it seems a bit contradictory to say that something isn't connected but yet has no distance between it(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
