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.

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

How is constructing a perpendicular bisector similar to constructing an angle bisector?

No. Well... kind of because they are both bisections. The difference is that the angle bisector splits an angle in half, while a perpendicular bisector creates a right angle from a horizontal line. They both "split" something in half.


What is the difference between and angle bisector and a perpendicular bisector?

An angle bisector bisects an angle. A perpendicular bisector bisects a side.


If a point is equidistant from the two sides of an angle then it is?

on the perpendicular bisector


What is the difference between a perpendicular bisector and a angle bisector?

A perpendicular bisector is a line that divides a given line segment into halves, and is perpendicular to the line segment. An angle bisector is a line that bisects a given angle.


How does the perpendicular bisector affect the vertex angle of an isoceles triangle?

The perpendicular bisector bisects the angle at the vertex.


Can a median be an angle bisector and not a perpendicular bisector?

Yes.


Can the angle bisector of a triangle also be the perpendicular bisector?

Yes. The bisector of one angle of a triangle is the perpendicular bisector of theopposite side if the bisected angle is the vertex angle of an isosceles triangle,or any angle of an equilateral triangle.


What does a perpendicular bisector look like?

A perpendicular bisector has a right angle or 90 degrees


What is the first step in constructing an angle bisector?

Construct the angle.


What are the similarities between angle bisector and perpendicular bisector?

Similarities between angle bisector and perpendicular bisector: Perpendicular bisector bisects a line segment into two equal parts at 90°. Angle bisector bisects an creating two congruent angles they both bisect into equal parts! =)


What do you need to do to prove a line is an angle bisector of an angle?

Draw a perpendicular to that line and extend the arms of the angle to meed the perpendicular drawn earlier. Check if the line is bisecting the perpendicular, if yes, then the line is a bisector of the angle. :)


Is a perpendicular bisector always an angle bisector?

thank goodness for my math teacher, norm! he said only in an isosceles triangle. The bisector of the vertex angle of an isosceles triangle is perpendicular to the base! =)
