Well, the book didn't elaborate on that. I assume since it didn't elaborate then A=D and B=C is not applicable.

The definition I have, in the book, for line segment is: If A and B are distinct points in a metric geometry then the line segment from A to B is the set Where P is the set of points and ACB means that the point C is between A and B.

Do you have any idea on how I can prove this?

What exactly does mean, i.e., what does "between A and B" mean?

C is between A and B if the distance
