# Construction of Midpoint & Perpendicular Bisector

## Directions

1) Draw a "Segment"
2) Draw a "Circle with Center Through Point" centered at one endpoint of the segment with a radius equal to the length of the segment.
3) Repeat step 2 but this time draw your circle centered at the other endpoint of the segment.
4) Using the "Intersect" point tool, create points where the circles intersect.
5) Draw a line or a segment connecting those two points
6) Using the "Intersect" point tool, create a point (midpoint) of the segment
7) Verify that your line or segment is a perpendicular bisector by measuring each half of the segment and the angle formed by their intersection
