### 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.

### 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.

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 = -7
Substitute in the formula as :
The above example will clearly illustrates how to calculate the
Coordinates of MidPoint manually.

### Mid point of a segment and angle bisector?

Definition of angle bisector:
An angle is formed by two rays with a common endpoint. The
angle bisector is a ray or line segment that bisects the
angle, creating two congruent angles. To construct an angle
bisector you need a compass and straightedge.
Definition of midpoint:
Midpoint of a line segment is the point that is halfway between
the endpoints of the line segment. A line segment has only one
midpoint. If AB is a line segment and P is the midpoint, then AP =
BP =

###### Asked in Math and Arithmetic, Geometry

### Why does a line segment have one midpoint and can have many bisectors?

A bisector is a line (or line segment) which passes through the
midpoint. You can have multiple lines intersect at this one
point, and all of them will bisect the original line segment,
since they pass through its midpoint. A perpendicular
bisector passes through the midpoint, and also is perpendicular
to the original line segment, so there will be only one of
those.
