Suppose that maple Street and Oak Street follow a straight line path and intersect Route 6 at angles 90º and 85º, as shown in the map below. If the streets continue in a straight line, will their paths ever cross?
Distance between a point & line The shortest distance between a point and A line is its perpendicular segment R V m The distance from Point R to line m is VR.
Draw the segment that would represent the distance from the point to the line. 1. 2. 3. 4.
Name the segment whose length represents the distance between the following points and lines. 1) A to BC 2) C to AB 3) B to AC 4) N to BC
