## Which of these can not form a perpendicular bisector?

Parallel lines can also form perpendicular bisector if a line is drawn from mid point of one line to mid point of another line. A line segment can form perpendicular bisector. But circle can’t as it is curved shape it needs line to make perpendicular bisector.

## What are the two requirements for being a perpendicular bisector?

Definition: A line which cuts a line segment into two equal parts at 90°. Try this Drag one of the orange dots at A or B and note the the line AB always divides the segment PQ into two equal parts. When it is exactly at right angles to PQ it is called the perpendicular bisector.

## How do you know if something is a perpendicular bisector?

A perpendicular bisector of a line segment passes through the midpoint of the line segment and intersects the line segment at 90^\circ. If a point is equidistant from the endpoints of a segment, then the point is on the perpendicular bisector of the segment.

## How do you find the perpendicular bisector step by step?

The perpendicular bisector of a line segment

- open the compass more than half of the distance between A and B, and scribe arcs of the same radius centered at A and B.
- Call the two points where these two arcs meet C and D. Draw the line between C and D.
- CD is the perpendicular bisector of the line segment AB.
- Proof.

## How do I find the equation of a perpendicular line?

Perpendicular lines have opposite-reciprocal slopes, so the slope of the line we want to find is 1/2. Plugging in the point given into the equation y = 1/2x + b and solving for b, we get b = 6. Thus, the equation of the line is y = ½x + 6. Rearranged, it is –x/2 + y = 6.

## What is perpendicular of a triangle?

The perpendicular bisector of a side of a triangle is a line perpendicular to the side and passing through its midpoint. The three perpendicular bisectors of the sides of a triangle meet in a single point, called the circumcenter . A point where three or more lines intersect is called a point of concurrency.

## What is an example of horizontal mobility?

1. Horizontal mobility. This occurs when a person changes their occupation but their overall social standing remains unchanged. For example, if a doctor goes from practicing medicine to teaching in a medical school, the occupation’s changed but their prestige and social standing likely remain the same.
