How to calculate the Length of a Line Segment
We will study how our understanding of coordinate geometry can help us to calculate a distance between two points (the length of a line segment). As you know a line continues forever and therefore has an infinite length. Therefore we can only calculate the length of a part of a line which is a line segment. Check the videos below during your maths revision in which I will explain how to calculate the length of a line segment
