# What is a bisected line segment?

A line segment that has been cut exactly in half

# What does it mean to bisect a line segment?

Basically the definition of bisect is to separate two parts of a line segment to create two congruent line segments, which leads to them being equal.

# A perpendicular line or segment that bisects one side of a triangle is called the?

Perpendicular bisector.

# What does it mean to bisect an angle or a line segment?

∠PQR Where PQR form an angle and Q is the angle's vertex. The bisection is the line that goes between the lines QP and QR Bisection is a mathematical tool to find the …root of intervals. Example: ∠PQR Form an angle of 75° A bisection would lead into two smaller angles which can be called ∠PQA and ∠RQA, both 37,5° And then you can do calculations on the smaller angles, depending on what root you are looking for.

# What are perpendicular line segments?

Perpendicular line segments are line segments that cross with each other and form angles of 90 degrees.

# Can a line bisect a segment?

Yes or 'True' ~

# Can a segment bisect a line?

No. Since a line is infinite, it has no mid-point. A bisector must go through a midpoint so nothing can bisect a line (not even a segment).

# What does it mean if a segment or angle is bisected by a line?

It means it is split in half right down the middle.

# What is the equation perpendicular and bisecting the line segment of 3 5 and 7 7?

It works out as: 2x+y-16 = 0

# How do you find the equation of the perpendicular line bisecting the line segment of -2 5 and -8 -3?

if u don't now then i don't now Improved answer as follows:- First find the mid-point of (-2, 5) and (-8, -3) which is (-5, 1) Then find the slope or gradient of (-2, 5) and (…-8, -5) which is 4/3 The perpendicular slope is the negative reciprocal of 4/3 which is -3/4 So the perpendicular bisector passes through (-5, 1) and has a slope of -3/4 Use y -y1 = m(x -x1) y -1 = -3/4(x- -5) y = -3/4x-11/4 which can expressed in the form of 3x+4y+11 = 0 So the equation of the perpendicular bisector is: 3x+4y+11 = 0

# Why bisect a line segment?

To find its mid point. Which then raises the question why find its midpoint and I cannot answer that.

# What must be true about a perpendicular bisector and the segment it bisects?

It bisects the line segment at midpoint at 90 degrees and its slope is the reciprocal of the line segment's slope plus or minus.

# Can a line perpendicular to a segment also bisect the segment?

Sure. There's even a special name for that line. It's called the "perpendicular bisector" of the segment.
