How To Denote a Segment:

Use capital letters of the two points With P and R as the segment endpoints PR.

Midpoint of a Segment:

A unique point which bisects a segment into equal parts.

Midpoint Image

Segment PR, has one unique midpoint Q, such that PQ ≅ QR

What 7 concepts are covered in the What is a Segment Calculator?

geometry

study of math dealing with shapes, space, and properties of space

line

an infinitely long one-dimensional object with no width, depth, or curvature

midpoint

the middle point of a line segment. It is equidistant from both endpoints. It bisects the segment.

plane

a flat, two-dimensional surface that extends indefinitely

point

an exact location in the space, and has no length, width, or thickness

segment

part of a straight line that is bounded by two distinct end points, and contains every point on the line that is between its endpoints.
