Can we draw a perpendicular bisector without drawing a circle?

Yes, the perpendicular bisector of a line segment can be constructed without drawing the circles.

Follow the given steps to construct the perpendicular bisector of the line segment.

Step 1: Draw a line segment, AB.

Step 2: With A as centre and radius more than half the length of AB, draw two arcs on opposite side of AB.

Step 3: With B as centre and  radius same as taken in step 2, draw two arcs intersecting the previous arcs in P and Q.

Step 4: Join PQ.

Thus, PQ is the perpendicular bisector of AB.
