Exam notes: How to make Perpendicular bisectors

There are two ways to make perpendicular bisectors. One way is to make semi circles and the other way is to just measure.

Way 1:
1. take your compass, put the point at the end of the line segment and draw a semi-circle.
2. do the same thing to the other end of the line segment.
3. take the ruler, align it to the intersections of the 2 semi-circles and draw a line.
4. label the bisector.

the end result should look like this:

Way 2:
1. take your ruler and measure the line segment.
2. find the center of the line and make a mark, then draw a straight line
3. label it.
