Title: Altitudes, Medians, and Perpendicular Bisectors

1
Altitudes, Medians, and Perpendicular Bisectors
• Geometry Chapter 2 Section 4

2
Definitions
• Altitude
• is the perpendicular segment from a vertex to the
line containing the opposite side.

3
Definitions
• Median
• is a segment with endpoint that is a vertex of
the triangle and the midpoint of the opposite
side.

4
Definition
• Perpendicular Bisector
• Any line, ray, or segment that is perpendicular
to a segment at its midpoint.

5
Perpendicular Bisector Theorem
• If a point lies on the perpendicular bisector of
a segment, then the point is equidistant from the
endpoints of the segment.
