## Study Notes

### Straight Line in Geometry

• A straight line is a set of points that extend infinitely in two directions, with no curves or bends.

### Definition of Lines in Euclid's Elements

• In Euclid's Elements, a line is defined as a breadthless length, which is a fundamental concept in geometry.

### Lines in Terms of Dimension

• A line is a one-dimensional figure, having only length but no width or thickness.

### The Word 'Line' in Everyday Life

• In everyday life, the word 'line' refers to a continuous mark or a sequence of points on a surface, such as a pencil mark on a paper.

### Euclidean Line and Euclidean Geometry

• The terms 'Euclidean line' and 'Euclidean geometry' are introduced to avoid confusion with non-Euclidean geometry, which deals with curved lines and non-flat spaces.
• Euclidean geometry is a system of geometry based on the works of Euclid, where lines are assumed to be straight and flat.
