  1. Set a compass to draw a circle with a radius that's more than half the length of the line segment but less than the whole length.
  2. Put the compass point at one end of the segment and draw an arc above the middle of the segment and another below the middle of the segment.
  3. Put the compass point at the other end of the segment and again draw arcs above and below the middle of the segment, intersecting the first two arcs.
  4. Draw a line connecting the point where the two arcs intersect above the segment and the point where they intersect below the segment.

That's your perpendicular bisector.

A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

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 :))


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.
