Bisect a segment is to divide the line segment into 2

a segment bisect is a point or a line the intersects (splits) a line segment in the middle

Yes or 'True' ~

To bisect anything is to cut it in half. So if one line segment bisects another line segment, then the second segment is divided into two equal lengths.

No. Since a line is infinite, it has no mid-point. A bisector must go through a midpoint so nothing can bisect a line (not even a segment).

No

Yes, it is.

Basically the definition of bisect is to separate two parts of a line segment to create two congruent line segments, which leads to them being equal.

Sure. There's even a special name for that line. It's called the "perpendicular bisector" of the segment.

No

If your question was: Does a midpoint bisect a segment? Then yes it does... It divides it in half.

Measure it or bisect it with a compass
