I recognize a perpendicular bisector 1. Definition of a perpendicular bisector of a segment mediatrizLa is a straight line perpendicular to the segment that passes through the point half. Put another way: is a straight line that cuts perpendicular to a segment at its midpoint. The perpendicular bisector of a segment is a line of symmetry of that segment.2 Properties of the perpendicular bisector of a segment mediatrizLa is the set of points in the plane which are equidistant from the endpoints of the segment. If we take the segment AB, all points of the perpendicular bisector are the same distance from that of B.Por example, in Figure 2, the M point, which belongs to the perpendicular bisector of AB, is located at A 4 cm and 4 cm from B, and point N, also of the perpendicular bisector, is A 2.5 cm and 2.5 cm of same B.asi, if a point is equidistant from A and B, we can say that that point is part of the perpendicular bisector of the segment AB.For example, in Figure 3, the M point is equidistant from A and B (3 cm), and is therefore in the perpendicular bisector of AB. II. draw the perpendicular bisector of a segment2.
With a Compaslas series of figures that are shown below describe the stages of its construction. The steps should be adapted according to measures that give us.Two points used to draw the perpendicular bisector is equidistant to the endpoints of the segment; We will use the same opening of compass to draw two arcos.2. With a ruler and a Cartabonlas series of figures below show the steps to follow. We must adapt them according to measures that give us.
