A line segment is bisected, forming two new line segments. If the original line segment had a measure of 78 inches, what is the measure of each new line segment?
Bisecting a line segment means dividing it into two congruent line segments.
The original line segment measures 78 inches. Divide by 2 to find each new, smaller line segment.
78 ÷ 2 = 39
So, each new line segment measures 39 inches.
After bisecting an angle measuring 90°, Robert has two angles. What is the measure of each new angle?
Bisecting an angle means dividing it into two congruent angles.
The original angle measures 90°. Divide by 2 to find each new, smaller angle.
So, each new angle measures 45°.
