A bisector divides an angle into two equal parts. Therefore, if the bisector begins on the middle of a straight line (180 degrees) then the bisector must form a right-angle with the straight line.

How is constructing a perpendicular bisector different to constructing an angle bisector?

A perpendicular bisector is a straight line that divides a side of a triangle in two and is at right angles to that side. An angle bisector is a straight line that divides an angle of a triangle in two.


Divide an angle into equal angles?

A bisector is a line that divides an angle into two equal parts. For example: in a right-angle (90 degrees) a bisector will cut the angle into two, each being 45 degrees.


What is the perpendicular bisector of a side?

A bisector is a line that divides another into two halves. If the second line is at right angles to the first, it is perperdicular. So, a perpendicular bisector of a side is a line which is at right angles to the side and which divides the side into two halves.


What is right bisector in math?

A right bisector of a line segment, is better know as a perpendicular bisector. It is a line that divides the original line in half and is perpendicular to it (makes a right angle).

What name is given to a line that divides another line into halves?

When a line divides another in two equal parts, it is called a bisector. If the bisector happens to cross the other line at right angles, it is called a perpendicular bisector.


Does perpendicular mean that it divides the line into 2 equal parts?

No, it means it's at right angles to the line. You may be confusing it with bisector

What is the difference between a perpendicular line and a perpendicular bisector?

A perpendicular line is one that is at right angle to another - usually to a horizontal line. A perpendicular bisector is a line which is perpendicular to the line segment joining two identified points and which divides that segment in two.

What angle has one right angle and two acute angles?

A right-triangle has a right angle (90o) and two acute angles.


Does a right angled triangle is one angle always a right angle?

Yes. A right triangle is a triangle where one angle is a right angle. If two out of three angles are right angles, then it's an isosceles triangle. If all three angles are right angles, then it is an equilateral triangle.


Why are angles equal when sides are equal?

This is only true of triangles. Rhombi and other "squashed" polygons with more than three sides show that it is not true otherwise. The two equal sides meet at an angle. It can be shown that the bisector of that angle divides the triangle into two triangles with one set of equal sides, one common side and these sides define angles of equal measure. So by SAS, the two triangle are congruent and so the angles in question are equal. Alternatively, you could prove (as easily) that the altitude from that angle divides the original triangle into two right angled triangles with a common side and equal hypotenuses. Again congruence resulting in the equality of the angles as required.

What is the name given to angles that form a right angle when added together?

Right angles aren't formed by other angles - it is already an angle itself. However, if you bisect a right angle, it becomes two acute angles.
