3.2 Constructing Perpendicular Bisectors
Segment Bisector: a line, ray or segment in a plane that passes through the midpoint of a segment in a plane.
Perpendicular Bisector: a line segment that bisects a line at a 90 degree angle.
Coincide: line or line segments that are identical to each other
Median: line segment connecting the vertex of a triangle to the mid point of the opposite side
Mid-segment: a line segment connecting the midpoints of two sides of a triangle
C-7 Shortest Distance Conjecture: The shortest distance from a point to a line is measured along the _______ segment from the point to the line.
