What is the minimum number of line segments that can be used to form a closed figure?


Answer:

Three (triangle is the figure thus generated)

Step by Step Explanation:
  1. A line segment is part of a line bounded by two distinct end points.
  2. We know that one or two line segments cannot be used to form a closed figure, as shown below:
  3. Three line segments can be used to form a closed figure. For example, a triangle has three line segments and forms a closed figure.
  4. Therefore, three is the minimum number of line segments required to form a closed figure.
