Intersecting Lines

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

perpendicular lines are a special type of intersecting line that happen to intersect at 90 degree angles

A quadrilateral is "guaranteed" to be a parallelogram if (a) the opposite side are parallel, or (b) any line segment perpendicular to one side and intersecting the opposite side is also perpendicular to the opposite side, or (c) any line segment perpendicular to one side and intersecting the opposite side has the same length as any other such perpendicular line intersecting the opposite side (sometimes vaguely expressed as "opposite sides are everywhere equidistant"), or (d) the angles at the two ends of any side add up to 180 degrees.

an intersecting line segment is when two line segments cross together

Intersecting lines may or may not be perpendicular. If the angle of intersection between two intersecting lines is 90 degrees, then the two lines are perpendicular. Otherwise, the lines are not perpendicular. For example: A | | | B ----|----- | | Here, the lines A and B are intersecting. The angle between A and B is 90 degrees. Therefore, line A and line B are perpendicular to each other.
