Constructions

If a line perpendicular to another line segment divides it into two equal parts, then it is called perpendicular bisector of the line segment.

In this figure, AB is a line segment and the line PQ divides it into two equal parts and also, . Thus, we can say that PQ is the perpendicular bisector of.

Now, let us learn how to construct the perpendicular bisector of a line segment using ruler and compasses.

In this way, we can draw a perpendicular bisector of a given line segment.

Look at the following figures.
