Define midpoint and segment bisector, distinguishing the difference between the two.
Review the midpoint formula: (, )
Provide examples that demonstrate how to solve for unknown variables and segment lengths (ex. Points A, B and C are collinear, in that order. is the segment bisector to segment . = 6x + 4 and = 12x – 2. Solve for x and find the length of and ).
This packet should help a learner seeking to understand segment bisectors.
