# How do you contrust the mid point of a given line?

First, it needs to be a line segment: a line is infinitely long
and so has no midpoint.

Suppose the line to be bisected is AB. Place the point of a pair of compasses at A with an arc which is greater than half AB. Draw arcs above and below the line segment. Then, move the compass point to B and without changing the arc width, draw fresh arcs to intercept the previous ones at points X and Y. The intersection of the line segment XY and AB is the midpoint of AB.

### How do you divide a hexagon into four?

Imagine the corner points of the hexagon are numbered 1,3,5,7,9,11 and the mid-point of the edges are numbered 2,4,6,8,10 and 12 correctly in order between the points - pretty much like numbers on a clock. Draw a line from mid-point 12 to mid-point 6 and then draw another line from corner point 3 to corner point 9. This should divide the hexagon into 4 identical pieces.

### What is a midpoint in coordinates?

Mid Point Definition: The point halfway between the endpoints of a line segment is called the midpoint. A midpoint divides a line segment into two equal parts. Mid Point Formula: MidPoint where (x1, y1) (x2, y2) be the end points of a line segment. MidPoint Diagram Mid Point Example: Find the coordinates of the midpoint of the line joining (-1, -3), (-5, -7). x1 = -1, y1 = -3 and x2 = -5, y2 =…

### How is the midpoint of a segment different from the length of a segment?

Mostly because, assuming it just one segment, a midpoint by definition (mid- means middle) is the point at the exact middle of a line segment; whereas the length of the segment is the entire length of the segment. Pretty much, a midpoint is a point in the middle of the line, the length is the measurement of the same line.
