# Construction of angle bisector of an angle

If a line or line segment divides an angle into two equal angles, then the line or line segment is called angle bisector of the given angle.

Construction of angle bisector of an angle.

If a line or line segment divides an angle into two equal angles, then the line or line segment is called angle bisector of the given angle.

In the following figures we can observe some angle bisectors. Example 5.12

Construct bisector of the ABC with the measure 80°.

Step 1: Draw the given angle ABC with the measure 80° using protractor. Step 2: With B as center and convenient radius, draw an arc to cut BA and BC.

Mark the points of intersection as E on BA and F on BC. Step 3: With the same radius and E as center, draw an arc in the interior of ABC and another arc of same measure with center at F to cut the previous arc. Step 4: Mark the point of intersection as G.

Draw a ray BX through G.

BG is the required bisector of the given angle ABC Tags : Geometry | Term 1 Chapter 5 | 7th Maths , 7th Maths : Term 1 Unit 5 : Geometry
