Perpendicular Bisector

Equilateral triangles

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.

Endpoints: (2, 9) and (9, 2) Midpoint: (5.5, 5.5) Slope of line segment: -1 Perpendicular slope: 1 Perpendicular bisector equation: y-5.5 = 1(x-5.5) => y = x

Points: (-1, -6) and (5, -8) Midpoint: (2, -7) Perpendicular slope: 3 Perpendicular bisector equation: y = 3x -13

Perpendicular Bisector

It's called a perpendicular bisector of the line segment.

The bisector and the line segment are perpendicular to each other.

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 :))

A perpendicular bisector [for a given line segment] is a line that meets it at 90 degrees and divides it into two halves.

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.

Not sure what an "irie" is. But a bisector does not need to be perpendicular.
