That is a point in the line. A point involves location, whereas a dot is usually a printed or visible mark. Also, A laser POINTER POINTS to a location, but a DOT of light makes it visible. 1.5 feet...the point is at 1/2 the length of a foot. To show this, a DOT is used, but called a 'point'. The "Dot" Com? The .com is purely slang for "period COM".

So, how many dots does it take to make a line? Can 2 dots make a line? Or is that just two seperate points? Sgtar15

2^(aleph_0) dots in a line

Two points define a line. (Before anybody gets cute: that means a [i]straight[/i] line; mathematicians call anything else a [i]curve[/i].) There is exactly one line that goes through 2 given points. But the line itself has an infinite number of points (infinite with the cardinality of R, for sticklers). Any 2 of these infinite points can define the line.

They're the exact same, only different.

Fizassist get the ribbon. A point has no demensions. A dot is made with a pencil Time is what is indicated on a clock (Einstein) A second is is defined as the duration of 9,192,631,770 periods of the radiation corresponding to the transition between the two hyperfine levels of the ground state of the cesium-133 atom????

A line has no width. A dot has no circumfrence. A point has no diameter.

What's your point?

A dot is just a point you use insted of a point. But what I want to know is at what point dose a point become a dot?
Link Posted: 10/20/2002 4:51:46 PM EDT
... awrighty, my .02 cents a dot occupies some space (you can see a dot) a point is a coordinate in an X,Y,Z three dimensional space

A point will never become a dot. A point is a location, a dot is a mark - however, a dot can be used to illustrate a point. If I use a dot to mark a point at an end of a line segment, the point still remains a point with a dot making the spot. At this point, the dot supplants the point, but the point never becomes a dot, get my point? 934

You ever say stuff like that in a bar and instantly regret it when every other conversation at the table stops? Yeah, me too.
