Objective: To identify and use perpendicular bisectors and angle bisectors in triangles

PERPENDICULAR BISECTOR

   A perpendicular bisector of a side of a triangle is a
line, segment, or ray that passes through the midpoint of
the side and is perpendicular to that side.




Since a triangle has three sides, there are three
perpendicular bisectors in a triangle. The perpendicular
bisectors of a triangle intersect at a common point. When
three or more lines intersect at a common point, the lines
are called concurrent lines, and their point of intersection
is called the point of concurrency. The point of
concurrency of the perpendicular bisectors of a triangle
is called the circumcenter.
