directed line
one direction is (+) & other ()

directed line segment
segment of line containing any 2 points & in between

directed distances
distances in figure denoted

undirected distances
length of segment (+)



inclination
 angle greater than or equal to zero degrees
 formed from a line & (+) xaxis
 positive direction (rotation CCW)

slope
 ratio
 rise/run=change y/change x
 m=tan theta

formula for angle between two lines
tan theta=m_{2}m_{1}/1+m_{2}m_{1}

rules for an angle between two lines
 psi must be in CCW
 m_{1} must be initial side
 m_{2} must be terminal side

formula for division of line segment
ratio= part length/total length
