## What is a Segment Definition:

`A part of a line bounded by two`

distinct end points, and contains

every point on the line between

the endpoints.

## How To Denote a Segment:

Use capital letters of the two points

With P and R as the segment endpoints

PR.

## Midpoint of a Segment:

A unique point which bisects a segment

into equal parts.
