false apex The Greeks used a straightedge and a compass
Not always because a perpendicular bisector can be constructed with compasses
Yes it is.
Use a protractor.
A compass and a straightedge
it would be perpendicular to the line.
A compass and a straight edge
There are two ways to construct a segment. One way is drawing the perpendicular bisector, the second is with a ruler.
on the perpendicular bisector
Yes, but you will also need a pen or pencil. Also, if the line segment is very long (eg 5 metres) you may have difficulty in finding a compass that will do the trick!
Biconditional Statement for: Perpendicular Bisector Theorem: A point is equidistant if and only if the point is on the perpendicular bisector of a segment. Converse of the Perpendicular Bisector Theorem: A point is on the perpendicular bisector of the segment if and only if the point is equidistant from the endpoints of a segment.
An angle bisector bisects an angle. A perpendicular bisector bisects a side.
Converse of the Perpendicular Bisector Theorem - if a point is equidistant from the endpoints of a segment, then it is on the perpendicular bisector of the segment.Example: If DA = DB, then point D lies on the perpendicular bisector of line segment AB.you :))
Similarities between angle bisector and perpendicular bisector: Perpendicular bisector bisects a line segment into two equal parts at 90°. Angle bisector bisects an creating two congruent angles they both bisect into equal parts! =)
The Perpendicular bisector concurrency conjecture is the circumcenter
