In this video you will learn how to create a line bisector using a compass.

Line Bisector: Splits a line segment into two congruent segments


  1. Use a compass to draw an arc with one end at the endpoint of the line segment. Make sure that the arc should be beyond where the midpoint is located.
  2. Do the same to the other endpoint without changing the radius of the compass
  3. Draw a straight line that goes through the two intersections of the two arcs

The line bisector is perpendicular with the given line segment, so it will form right angles.
