Trisecting a line . 1. Using a ruler, draw a straight line that starts at one end of the line to be trisected (the "original" line) and forms an angle with it that is some …number of degrees less than 90.. 2. Using a compass (the drawing kind, not the navigating kind), set some distance on it, say, 2 inches. 3. Putting the point at the intersection of the original line and the one you just drew, make a mark with the pencil end that intersects the line you just drew. Place the point on that intersection point and repeat. Now move the compass and repeat again. 4. From the point at which your third mark intersects the line you drew in step 1, draw a straight line to the end of the original line. 5. Using a protractor, measure the angle formed by the line you drew at step 1 and the step 4 line. 6. With the protractor draw a line from the second mark to the original line that has the same angle as the line in step 5. 7. With the protractor draw a line from the first mark to the original line that has the same angle as the line in step 5. 8. Take a break! .

A point that divides a segment into two segments of equal length is a midpoint.
the middle of something divides it into two equal parts not the center because the center divides it into 4 equal parts
No. . yes
It's called a Midpoint.
The midpoint divides a line segment into congruent parts.
The point that divides a line segment into two equal parts is called the midpoint. |________________|________________| Let the first vertical line, | , represent point A. Le…t the second vertical line represent point C. Let the third vertical line represent point B. Before we divided this line, it was segment AB. The MIDPOINT, C, divided it into two equal parts.
Measure it and then divide the number by 4 so you will know how far you nedd to cut it
A segment bisector or angle bisector. A bisector can be a line, line segment, or ray.
