# How many endpoints does a line segment have? How many midpoints does a line segment have?

To determine

The number of endpoints a line segment have and the number of midpoints a line segment have.

Explanation

A line segment is the part of a line, which has an initial point and a terminal point also which includes all the points between them on the line.

In the above line ‘lA is the initial point of the line segment AB and B is the terminal point.

Both, the initial point and the terminal point of the line segment AB are at the end of the line segment. Thus both the initial and the terminal points are consider as the end points of AB¯.

Hence, there are two end points in a line segment.

Midpoint of a line segment is the point which bisects the line segment into two line segments of equal length
