Basic Geometry

We at ask-math believe that educational material should be free for everyone. Please use the content of this website for in-depth understanding of the concepts. Additionally, we have created and posted videos on our youtube.

We also offer One to One / Group Tutoring sessions / Homework help for Mathematics from Grade 4th to 12th for algebra, geometry, trigonometry, pre-calculus, and calculus for US, UK, Europe, South east Asia and UAE students.

Affiliations with Schools & Educational institutions are also welcome.

We will be happy to post videos as per your requirements also. Do write to us.

In the basic geometry we will discuss about geometrical terms such as point,line, line segment and more.
The word 'geometry' means measurement of the earth.Various shapes and figures with which we deal in Geometry are called geometrical figures.In geometry, we learn about the construction of geometrical figures and study their properties. Thus, we can say that geometry is the science of properties and relations of figures.
Geometric Terms


1) Point : A point is the basic unit of Geometry. It shows an exact positions.

It is represented by any capital letter such as A,B,P,Q etc.

Example: . A -----> This is a point A.

2) Line : A line is a collection of points going endlessly in both directions along a straight path.



The symbol for a line is ↔. We call it line PQ and write it as arrow over PQ. Minimum of two points are needed to form a line. In this case PQ is a line.

3) Line segment : A line segment is part of a line. It has two end points. We name it by its endpoints. The symbol for a line segment is __ ( seg AB)




4) Ray : A ray is a part of a line. It has one end point and goes endlessly in one direction. The symbol for a ray is →




Plane: A solid has a surface, which can be flat or curved. Flat surface is known as plane surface. The surface of a table is an example of a plane. A plane is commonly named by taking three or more points on it, which are not on the same line.
