A bisector is a line (or line segment) which passes through the midpoint. You can have multiple lines intersect at this one point, and all of them will bisect the original line segment, since they pass through its midpoint. A perpendicular bisector passes through the midpoint, and also is perpendicular to the original line segment, so there will be only one of those.

A midpoint is a point. It's the point exactly halfway between the endsof a line segment.A perpendicular bisector is a line. It's the line that passes through themidpoint of the segment, and is perpendicular to the segment.

Those would be perpendicular bisectors. If you do that to each side of the triangle they all meet at what is called the circumcenter. http://mathworld.wolfram.com/Circumcircle.html
