Bisecting a Line


Divide a line segment  AB into two

congruent segments.


1.- Label the line segment  (AB).


2.- Place the tip of the compass at point A

      and use any convenient radius to draw

      arcs above an below  segment AB. 

   -  The radius ( the opening of the compass )

      should be more than one half the distance




3.- Place the tip of the compass at

      point B and use the same radius 

      (see last step) to draw arcs  above 

      and below segment AB.

     - Label  the intersection of the 

      segments (C and D).


4.-  Draw a line passing through points 

       C and D.
