In the given figure, what would be the correct notation to represent the line segment connecting the points 𝐴 and 𝐡?

This is point 𝐴, and here is point 𝐡. The line segment connecting these points would be this line right here. We’re asked to use the correct notation to represent this line segment. How would we write it? Well, we know the points at either end of the line segment, or 𝐴 and 𝐡. So, we would write them as 𝐴𝐡. And we show that it’s a line by drawing a straight line above the letters. This notation reads line 𝐴𝐡. We connected the points 𝐴 and 𝐡 and wrote the correct notation to represent this line segment.
