## What is a Perpendicular Bisector:

`A line which cuts a line segment`

into two equal parts at 90°.

We take a

segment and bisect it

Bisect means cut it in half

## Perpendicular Bisector Properties

A segment is split into 2 equal segments

PS ≅

QSThe perpendicular bisector forms 2

congruent right angles with the segment it bisects.

∠PSR = 90°

∠QSR = 90°

∠PSR ≅ ∠QSR
