What is it called when two segments have the same length?

What is it called when two segments have the same length?

Two line segments are congruent if they have the same length. They do not need to have the same position or orientation.

What does it mean when two line segments are equal?

Congruent segments
Congruent segments are simply line segments that are equal in length. Congruent means equal. We indicate that two line segments are congruent by using the congruence symbol. Use of the congruence symbol indicates that line segment AB is equal in length to line segment CD.

What is bisector math?

bisector. / (baɪˈsɛktə) / noun maths. a straight line or plane that bisects an angle. a line or plane that bisects another line.

What bisects a segment into two equal line segments?

Perpendicular Bisector is a line segment that bisects a straight line segment into two congruent or equal segments. They divide the line segment exactly at its midpoint. Perpendicular bisector makes 90° with the line segment it bisects.

What is a segment bisector in geometry?

Bisector means to divide, not just in two, but in halves, or two equal parts. Therefore, a segment bisector is a point, a line, a ray, or a line segment that bisects another line segment. A line segment has two endpoints, as we already stated. A ray has one endpoint and continues forever in the other direction.

What is the difference between saying two segments have an equal length and two segments are congruent?

When two shapes share the same size and form, they are congruent, and when they have the same form, but not necessarily the same size, they are similar.

What is bisector of a line segment?

To bisect a segment or an angle means to divide it into two congruent parts. A bisector of a line segment will pass through the midpoint of the line segment. A perpendicular bisector of a segment passes through the midpoint of the line segment and is perpendicular to the line segment.
