Line AB, represented symbolically by AB, extends infinitely far in opposite directions, as suggested by the arrows on the line. A line may also be represented by a single lowercase letter. 9(a) and (b) show the lines AB andÍ m. When a lowercase letter is used to name a line, the line symbol is omitted; that is, AB and m can name the same line. Í ! 9(c). When three points such as A, X, and B are on the same line, they are said to be collinear. In the order shown, which is symbolized A-X-B or B-X-A, point X is said to be between A and B.
