How can we divide a line segment into 5 equal parts?
Trisecting a line . 1. Using a ruler, draw a straight line that starts at one end of the line to be trisected (the "original" line) and forms an angle with it that is some …number of degrees less than 90.. 2. Using a compass (the drawing kind, not the navigating kind), set some distance on it, say, 2 inches. 3. Putting the point at the intersection of the original line and the one you just drew, make a mark with the pencil end that intersects the line you just drew. Place the point on that intersection point and repeat. Now move the compass and repeat again. 4. From the point at which your third mark intersects the line you drew in step 1, draw a straight line to the end of the original line. 5. Using a protractor, measure the angle formed by the line you drew at step 1 and the step 4 line. 6. With the protractor draw a line from the second mark to the original line that has the same angle as the line in step 5. 7. With the protractor draw a line from the first mark to the original line that has the same angle as the line in step 5. 8. Take a break! .

the middle of something divides it into two equal parts not the center because the center divides it into 4 equal parts
It's called a Midpoint.
The midpoint divides a line segment into congruent parts.
The point that divides a line segment into two equal parts is called the midpoint. |________________|________________| Let the first vertical line, | , represent point A. Le…t the second vertical line represent point C. Let the third vertical line represent point B. Before we divided this line, it was segment AB. The MIDPOINT, C, divided it into two equal parts.
The number of degrees in one complete revolution of a radius is 360Â°. Therefore the number of degrees covered in 1/5 of a revolution is 72Â° . To divide a circle into 5 …equal parts create 5 sectors each measuring 72Â° at the centre of the circle.
Measure it and then divide the number by 4 so you will know how far you nedd to cut it
5*20 cm = 1 meter
Select any one side. Divide its length into 5 equal parts. Do the same to the opposite side. Join the corresponding divisions. You will then have 5 equal rectangular divisions… of the square.
A segment bisector or angle bisector. A bisector can be a line, line segment, or ray.
