Bisect

 To bisect a line you split into two equal parts.

Buying secators to cut sticks in half will help you remember that when you bisect a line to split it into two equal parts

Buy secators (Bisect) and cut sticks in half.

 

You bisect a line as follows:

Bisecting line AB part 1

Measure the halfway point between A & B.

Bisecting line AB part 2 Measure the halfway point between A & B

You now have the bisection point.

Bisecting line AB part 3 Measure the halfway point between A & B this gives you the bisection point

 

 

NOTE:

If you draw a line at 90° to this bisection point.

Bisecting line AB part 4 If you draw a line at 90° to this bisection point, you now have a perpendicular bisection of the line A-B

You now have a perpendicular bisection of the line A-B.
