# In Exercises 35 and 36, use the method of proof of Theorem 7.1.1 to justify each construction method.The perpendicular bisector method.

To determine

To justify:

The perpendicular bisector construction method using the method of proof of theorem.

Explanation

Procedure used:

The locus of points in a plane and equidistant from the sides of an angle is the angle bisector.

Proof:

1) If a point is on the angle bisector, then it is equidistant from the sides of the angle.

In the following figure, the bisector BD divides the angle ABC and the point D lies on the bisector BD.

DE¯AB and DF¯BC.

Since BD bisects ABC, ABD=CBD.

Since, DE¯AB and DF¯BC, DEB=DFB right triangles.

By identity, BD¯BD¯.

By AAS, DEBDFB then DE¯DF¯ by CPCTC.

2) If a point is equidistant from the sides of an angle, then it is on the angle bisector.

In the above figure, the point D is equidistant from the sides of ABC.

ABC such that DE¯AB, DF¯BC and DE¯=DF¯.

Since BD bisects ABC, the point D lies on the bisector of ABC.

Since, DE¯AB and DF¯BC, DEB=DFB right triangles
