What is the perpendicular postulate?

The perpendicular postulate states that if there is a line, as well as a point that is not on the line, then there is exactly one line through the point that is perpendicular to the given line.

What is the definition of distance from point to line?

It the point is on the line the distance is 0. If the point is not on the line, then it is possible to draw a unique line from the point to the line which is perpendicular to the line. The distance from the point to the line is the distance along this perpendicular to the 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.

Which of these is equal to the distance from a point to a line?

the length of a perpendicular segment from the point to the line

When constructing a perpendicular bisector why must the compass opening be greater than the length of the segment?

So that the arc is mid-way in perpendicular to the line segment
