In this video you will learn how to create a line bisector using a compass.
Line Bisector: Splits a line segment into two congruent segments
- Use a compass to draw an arc with one end at the endpoint of the line segment. Make sure that the arc should be beyond where the midpoint is located.
- Do the same to the other endpoint without changing the radius of the compass
- Draw a straight line that goes through the two intersections of the two arcs
The line bisector is perpendicular with the given line segment, so it will form right angles.
