yes you can because a ruler measures lines.

ReplyDeleteYes because a line is staight and a line has no angles or right angles

ReplyDeleteyes because you have to on a test with a ruler

ReplyDeleteYes you can because if you use a ruler then you will be able to see how long or short the line is.

ReplyDeleteYes you can because 1 you can measure a line with a ruler and 2 because you can measure a straight angle

ReplyDeletehi again

ReplyDeleteThese answers make sense, but I encourage you to look up the mathematical definition of a line. Your answers might be a bit different when you do that...

ReplyDeleteGood luck!

-Miss K :)

Yes because it's straight. Just take a ruler, line up the zero mark with the beginning of the line, and see which number the end of the line is on.

ReplyDeleteYes you can measure a line because it is straight and you can measure one with a ruler. There have also been questions on test to measure a line segment.

ReplyDeleteA geometrical object that is straight, infinitely long and infinitely thin.

ReplyDeleteNo because a line goes on forever so it is impossible to measure. But you can measure a line segment.

ReplyDeleteYou can measure different aspects of a line such as the slope. But you can not measure a lines distance unless it is a line segment. Plain lines go on and on forever.

ReplyDeleteyes you can measure a line with a ruler because its straight.

ReplyDeleteyes u can because it straight just take a ruler and put it on the line

ReplyDeleteyes becuse you could use a ruler to see how a line is

ReplyDeleteYes you can because a line is straight

ReplyDeleteA geometrical object that is straight and is infinitely long and infinitely thin.

ReplyDeleteYes because if you use a ruler then you will be able to see how long or short the line is.

ReplyDeleteno you can not measure a line because a line goes on forever and ever and has no point to measure to and from. However you can measure a line segment because it has two ends you can measure =D

ReplyDeleteso you would need a super extra long ruler that goes on like the line

ReplyDeleteyes, because a line is a straight geometric line and a ruler tells us how long, short, thin, or large it is =D

ReplyDeleteYou can use a ruler to measure a small line but lines go on forever so it is possible but also inpossible. Also lines are straight so it is easy to measure small line with a ruler.

ReplyDeleteyes because if u use a ruler u will be able to see how long or short the line is

ReplyDeleteyes because if u use a ruler u will be able to measure how long or short it is. also because it is a straight line

ReplyDeleteNoooo! Because a line goes on forever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever so you would need a super super super long ruler!!!!!

ReplyDeleteYes, you can meausure a line because it is straight, and you can label it in many ways:cm,ft,meters,miles,yards...and so on. If it is a small line you would probaly measure with a ruler.

ReplyDeleteNo! you cannot measure the Length of a line! A line is never ending!

ReplyDeleteI found a link but it mentions line segments in it!

http://math.about.com/od/geometry/ss/linessegments.htm

No because a line goes on forever.

ReplyDeleteYou can't measure a line because a line keeps going on and on FOREVER!!!! However you can measure a line segment which has two end points that stop it from going on FOREVER and EVER.

ReplyDeleteThe definition of a line can be found at http://www.thefreedictionary.com/line

yes you can because the line is straight and not an angle of some sort.

ReplyDeleteDESTANY BEALL

And ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and if I keep saying this then my head will fall off!!!!!!!!!!!! So I am going to stop saying it now.....

ReplyDeleteHi destiny!!!!!

ReplyDeleteI think that you cannot measure a line because a line is exactly like a line segment but it goes on and on. A line never stops like a line segment.

ReplyDeleteYou cannot measure a line because it goes on forever but u can measure a line segment because it has 2 endpoints!!!

ReplyDeleteFrom kassidy keirstead

You can not measure a line because it goes forever. You can measure a line segment though.

ReplyDeleteHelp from my brother. :)

You cannot measure a line because a line goes on forever. However, it os still possible to measure a line segment because it is just one line that stays the same.

ReplyDeletehi miss k its eddie no you cannot measure a line because a line keeps on going on and on for ever i looked it up at google and answers.com but all of the answers said that you cant measure a line.

ReplyDeleteyes you can measure a line because if you take a ruler, the ruler is a strait line. a strait line has no angles so it is easy to measure a line.

ReplyDeletebut its may be that a line goes on forever and is impossible to measure

ReplyDeleteNo, you cannot measure a line because it goes on forever and ever! However you can measure a segment of a line.

ReplyDeleteYou can not measure a line it goes on FOREVER AND EVER.

ReplyDeleteA line goes on forever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever and ever!!!!!!!!!

ReplyDeleteYou can not measure a line because it can go on forever and ever however you can measure a segment of a line!:)

ReplyDeletewoah daphne!

ReplyDeleteYou can measure a line because you can use a ruler.

ReplyDeleteIf a line has a beginning and an end (line segment) you can measure a line but other wise a line would go on and on

ReplyDeleteYou could measure a line SEGMENT because a line segment has a certain length, but a line in-particular, would go on for a long long time, and you wouldn't be able to measure it. And that students is why you can not measure a line.

ReplyDeleteNo. A line goes on for ever and Ever and EVer and EVEr and EVER!!! but you can measure a line segment....

ReplyDeleteI figured out how to put my profile picture miss.K so here it is.

ReplyDeleteugh It didn't show up hold on, I think this is it.

ReplyDeleteugh i give up nvm, it wuz a nyan cat, ok a nyan cat that's it

ReplyDeleteno you cant measure a line. but you can measure a line segment but a line goes on and on for ever and ever and ever and ever.

ReplyDeleteNo, because a line is never ending. But you could measure a line segment.

ReplyDeleteI can't measure a line because lines never end. What I can measure is a line segment because it ends a two certain points.

ReplyDeleteNo Miss K. you cannot measure a line because it is never ever, ever, ever, ever ending, but you can measure a line segment because they don't go on forever and ever and ever and ever.

ReplyDeleteYou can not measure a line because it keeps going on. But you can measure a line segment because it has two end points.

ReplyDeleteNo you can not measure a line because a line goes on forever. You could measure if it ended with a dot but that would be called a line segment. So you cannot measure a line.

ReplyDeleteyou can not me sure a line because it is an infinite length. But a line segment is only a piece of that infinite line.

ReplyDeleteno because a line is infinitely long and never ending. but you can mesure a line segment. i looked up the definition on this link

ReplyDeletehttp://www.mathopenref.com/line.html

You cannot measure a line because it is an infinite that goes forever. But you could measure a line segment. P.S. Hi Miss K!!!!!!!!!!!

ReplyDelete!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!:):):)

No Because a Line Goes On Forever. To Measure A Line It Would Have To Be A Segment.

ReplyDeleteYou can not measure a line because it goes on for ever therefor you cannot measure a line but you can measure a line segment because it stopes at two ends so you can measure it.

Nice job everyone!!!! I'm excited to continue talking about this tomorrow in class! Keep up the great work!

ReplyDeleteps- I love it when you all write comments on the blog! :)

-Miss K :)

No, you can't because a line is a long mark of band that can go on forever and ever. Sometimes it cannot be measured using one of our man made tools. However, a line segment can be measured. Since a line segment has to stop eventually, and it has two end points, it therefore can be measured.

ReplyDeleteP.S: this is GK

Yes, because a line is straight. YOu can put a ruler up near it and measure how long it is(assuming it's not too big)

ReplyDeleteYou cannot measure a line because it goes on forever. ~Nicole L.

ReplyDeleteThat sounded really professional!!! Didnt it???

ReplyDeleteP.S: this is GK

no, you can measure a line segment but a line is infinity.

ReplyDeleteMy answer is yes and no. Yes, Because if I drew a line on a piece of paper, you could measure it. And no, because some mathematicians think that a line runs infantile, therefore, you could never measure a line that never ends.

ReplyDeleteYou cant measure a line because it goes on forever, but you can measure a line segment.

ReplyDeleteThat last one was me I forgot my name.

ReplyDeleteAlso, reading the comments above, the line segment means that they have ends or points to stop at. If you do not have an end or stopping point, the line will never stop.

ReplyDeleteNo you can not measure a line because it goes on forever. But you can measure a line segment because it stops at a certain point.

ReplyDeleteYes U can because almost everything can be measured. you just need the correct tools for the thing that u r measuring, or the correct information.

ReplyDeleteFitz#13

Also No because a line goes on FOREVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!

ReplyDeleteNO BECAUSE A LINE GOES ON FOREVER BUT YOU CAN MEASURE A LIN SEGMENT

ReplyDeleteyes if it is a 2D shape because of the shapes perimeter but if its a regular line not like a piece of rope then no because it goes on forever and so can a ray if its not connected but it would be more tricky to measure a line if it had a curve to it then you would have to use more math. That is my long sentence or paragraph of why you can measure a line or not. Also a line is a 1D shape if you draw it out.

ReplyDeletemiss k if your reading my other sentence its the longest line sentence about a line ever on your blog.

ReplyDeletejust saying longest line paragraph/ sentence on your blog ever.

ReplyDeleteNO YOU CAN NOT A LINE GOES ON FOR EVER AND EVER AND WILL NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER NEVER EVER EVER STOP INTILL YOU MAKE IT STOP BUT YOU CAN MEASURE A LINE SEGMENT .

ReplyDeleteWell a line is pretty long so u can't measure it but you can to a line segment.

ReplyDeleteSAY LIKE IN YOUR COMMENT IF YOU LIKE THE FAIL WHALE AND SAY DISLIKE IF YOU DON'T...

you can NOT measure a line because a line goes on forever so you would never be able to measure it. Yo would be measuring for the rest of your life and still not finish. You can not measure a line but you can measure a line segment. you can measure this because a line segement stops at some point.

ReplyDelete2 THINGS...I JUST REALIZED MY NAMES ARE DIFFERENT ON THE FIRST 2 AND SECONDLY IT'S MY B-DAY TOMORROW!

Talk to chuck...

ReplyDeleteNo, you cannot measure a line. It goes on forever and ever and ever. It is infinite. And extends out indefinitely in either of its directions. See you tomorrow!.

ReplyDeleteyes you can dean

yes cuz a line could be a hair which can be measured but it would be a little hard

ReplyDeletei remember learning about this...HI MISS K
