    Intersection of Rays

    Show that if A and B are distinct points, then the intersection of ray -> AB and ray -> BA = the line segment AB.

    Can someone show the proof? Thanks

    What are the definitions of "ray" and "line segment"? What must you prove to show that a set is a line segment?
