How many line segments does this shape have?

Since we want to determine the number of line segments in the given shape, let’s begin by recalling what is meant by a line segment. They are finite sections of a straight line. They are bounded between two points called the endpoints of the line segment.

We can determine the number of line segments in the shape by counting them. We see that one side of the shape is a finite section of line bounded by two vertices of the shape as shown. We can continue this process to count all of the line segments in the figure. We see that there are four line segments in the shape as shown.
