1 Perpendicular and Angle Bisectors

When a point is the same distance from two or more

objects, the p
oint is said to be
__________________

from

the objects. Triangle congruence theorems can be

used to prove

A
__________

is a set of points that satisfies a given condition. The perpendicular bisector
of a seg
ment can be defined as the locus of points in a plane that are equidistant from the
endpoints of the segment.

Example 1: Applying the Perpendicular Bisector Theorem and Its Converse

a.
Find
MN.

B. Find BC.

C. Find TU.

YOU TRY:

Given that

DE

= 20.8,
DG

= 36.4, and
EG

=36.4, find
EF
.

Remember that the distance between a point and a line is the length of the perpendicular
segment from the point to the line.

Based on these theorems, an angle bisector can be defined as th
e locus of all points in the
interior of the angle that are
__________________

from the sides of the angle.

Example 2: Applying the Angle Bisector Theorem

a. Find BC.

b
. Find m

that m

EFG
= 50°.

YOU TRY:

b.

Given that m

= 63°,
XW
= 5.7,

and
ZW
= 5.7, find m
