### 1.5 Segment & Angle Bisectors

Goals:

Students will understand geometric concepts and applications.

• Bisect a segment.
• Bisect an angle.
Remember!
• Congruent means,…
• equal to each other!
Midpoint
• The point that bisects a segment.
• Bisects?

splits into 2 equal pieces

Segment Bisector
• A segment, ray, line, or plane that intersects a segment at its midpoint.

Midpoint Formula
• Used for finding the coordinates of the midpoint of a segment in a coordinate plane.
• If the endpoints are (x1,y1) & (x2,y2), then
Angle Bisector
• A ray that divides an angle into 2 congruent adjacent angles.

BD is an angle bisector of <ABC.

Last example: Solve for x.

* If they are congruent, set them equal to each other, then solve!

x+40o

x+40 = 3x-20

40 = 2x-20

60 = 2x

30 = x

3x-20o
